Adults and kids alike flocked to Floyd Bennett Field this weekend, soaking in the bright sun, cotton candy, and carnival rides in equal measure at this year’s fun-filled Kings County Fair.

The fair was well-stocked with your typical carnival ride offerings, including a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and a spattering of kiddy rides. One unique addition to this year’s May fair fetivities was the “Stinger,” a massive pendulum ride, not unlike a viking ship attraction, which is the only one of its kind in the country — currently there are 11 in the world, with the remaining 10 residing in Europe.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Aviator Sports Center Marketing Manager Jaclyn Muns. “It’s 85-feet tall and you spin in one direction, and then the whole piece goes in another direction. It’s a little scary looking, but apparently it’s quite fun.”

Other less frightening attractions included the the World Famous “High Flying Pages” aerial trapeze show, “Miss Vicenta and her Royal White Bengal Tigers,” and eqestrian artistry performed by “The Riding Donnerts with Miss Mercedes Ballerina on Horseback.”

Kings County Fair at the Aviator Sports Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. between Aviation Road and the Shore Parkway in Mill Basin, (718) 758–7500, www.aviatorsports.com/content/kings-county-fair-0] Until May 28. $5 general admission.
