The Queens County Fair held at the farm museum in Floral Park is proving to be a major event for the borough with thousands of visitors descending on the location for last week’s annual event. Getting a taste of the rural life included watching pigs and ducks race, seeing the prize-winning produce and crafts and exploring the corn maze. — Liz Rhoades
