Traffic can get soooooo bad on the Grand Central Parkway! Good thing there’s a rural solution this weekend. Motorists who get off on Exit 24 and head southbound on Little Neck Parkway for a few blocks will discover the Queens County Farm Museum and its 32nd annual fair on Saturday and Sunday. This is truly a traditional county fair with blue-ribbon competitions in crafts, livestock, and produce. Other contests will include corn-husking, pie-eating, and pig-racing. Meanwhile, a Bavarian garden will host live music, and attendees won’t have to mosey for a long time to take a hay ride, explore the Amazing Maize Maze, pet some farm animals, or check out an adopt-a-worm booth.
Details: 32nd Annual Queens County Fair, Queens County Farm Museum, 73-50 Little Neck Parkway, Floral Park, September 20th and September 21st, 11 am to 6 pm, $9/$5 for children under 13.
