This weekend and next is the Queens County Farm Museum, Children’s Carnival. We went today for the first time and loved it. The amazing springtime weather, probably helped our experience some.
My Strange Family enjoyed the carnival rides, played midway games, won some prizes, took a hayride around the property, pet some friendly farm animals and the even took a pony ride (first time for both of the kids). If you are planning to go this weekend or next, make sure to get there early and expect long lines on the carnival rides. Also bring cash for the admission tickets, and all of the extra activities for the kids. The $12 admission includes unlimited carnival rides, but the petting zoo ($4), hayride ($3), pony ride ($4), midway games ($3-$5) and food are at an additional expense. It was easy enough to get there from the city on public transportation, we took the LIRR to Floral Park from PENN station, and then a short 5 min taxi ride to the Queens Farm.
The hours are Saturday & Sunday, April 11 – 12 & 18 – 19, 2015, 11 am – 6 pm
