This Weekend, A County Fair In the City
The 27th Annual Queens County Fair takes place this Saturday and Sunday. Queens County Farm is the only working stand-alone farm within the city limits, and its annual fair is a traditional affair, complete with blue ribbons for livestock, produce, and home crafts, as well as an Amazing Maize Maze, pie-eating and corn-husking contests, and make-your-own-scarecrow station. Throw hayrides, a petting zoo, and carnival rides into the mix and you'll swear you've gone down home. Enter the crafts, baking, or canning competition for the chance to win a blue ribbon of your very own.
