The free event will be held at Sunnyside Gardens Park, located at 48-21 39th Ave., from midday to 5 p.m. this Saturday, with a rain date set the following day, May 27.
The fair includes summer food staples like All-American BBQ, cotton candy, and craft ice cream from the Bliss Street Creamery. Beer, wine, and other beverages will also be available.
An array of family friendly activities, including rides and a bouncy house, face painting, and arts and crafts, are also planned for the fair.
