If you’re sitting at home wondering what to do on this lovely fall day, we highly recommend hightailing it over to the last day of the Queens County Farm Museum [3]‘s annual Queens County Fair. This celebration filled with food, furry friends and fun happens but once a year, so don’t miss your chance to enjoy colonial food demonstrations, live music played by fiddlers on stilts, delicious fried goods and fresh roasted corn right from the farm, pig racing [4], a petting and feeding zoo featuring llamas, sheep, silkie chickens, pigs, a tortoise and bunnies, fresh herb sampling, a “bean house”, blue-ribbon winning veggies grown in Queens, beer, a full carnival and rides and, of course, the Amazing Maize Maze [5]. If you’re thinking that Little Neck is a trek, we’re not going to lie, it’s about an hour on the QM6 from 36th and 6th in Manhattan [6], but well worth it to take a mini getaway from city life. Head on over to the farm today and you might even see some grotesquely large sunflowers [7], a quail egg [4] being laid, rare Kentucky Red Bats [8] or bees making honey [4].
