Queens County Fair
- September 22 and 23, 2012, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.: Queens County Fair
Like a county fair in upstate, it's also a chance to meet local politicians and check out a couple corporate exhibits. In 2007 JetBlue staged the interior of an airplane, open for exploration.
Entrance to the fair costs about $8 per adult and $5 per child. Expect to pay $3+ per carnival ride, another $2 per child to feed the animals, and more for hayrides and exploring the maze. We usually spend about $20 per person for an afternoon, and maybe more if you want to buy lunch there.
A word about the Amazing Maize Maze... I was a skeptic, and then we tried it. It's a lot of fun for a family, little kids up to teenagers. The farm does a great job making it entertaining and challenging. I highly recommend you try it. The maze is open usually weekends from mid-September to early November.
