Today’s news:

Corn dog! Kings County Fair starts on Thursday

The Brooklyn Paper

With a name like Kings County, it’s only proper that we have our own county fair.

And this month, the Aviator Sports and Event Center delivers, as it hosts the Kings County Fair from May 19 to 30, for 12 days of funnel cake, corn dogs and carnival rides.

For the thrill-seekers, the family-friendly affair will feature plenty of rides and games for kids — think bumper cars, a Ferris wheel, and the ones that tilt and spin at stomach-lurching levels. There’ll also be clowns, live music and food so good it’s bad for you, including cotton candy and funnel cakes.

“Like last year, we expect thousands of families to once again enjoy the rides, games, food and music at one of the area’s most cost-efficient activities,” said Kevin McCabe, co-founder of the Aviator Sports and Events Center.

Kings County Fair at Aviator Sports and Event Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. off the Belt Parkway in Marine Park, (718) 758-7500], May 19-30, Monday–Thursday, 5–11 pm; Friday, 5 pm-1 am; Saturday, noon-midnight; and Sunday, noon-11 pm. Admission $7, children under three feet are free. For info, visit

Cotton Candy?

Funnel Cakes?

Call Mayor for Life Mike - he'll put a stop to all this fun!

They will erect a statue of him when he's gone- The Statue of Lost-Liberty.
