Step right up!

A traveling funfair is coming to Astoria Park this week and carnival-goers will get a chance to enjoy various amusement rides, games, plus plenty of food and candy!

The funfair, operated by Dreamland Amusements, will set up at the corner of Hoyt Avenue and 19th Street – under the RFK bridge – and run from July 7 through July 11.

A Ferris wheel will rise high up into the air while thrill-seekers can test their nerves on some spectacular rides like the Super Himalaya, the Dream Catcher and the Zipper, according to a company spokesperson.

There will also be a range of children’s rides as well as some carnival-inspired games for families to take part in like balloon pop and lucky ducky.

The funfair will be open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on July 7 through July 9, and from noon to 11 p.m. on July 10 and July 11. Expect the funfair to come alive at night too with rides illuminating in LED lights!

Entry to the funfair is free, however, revelers will need to buy tickets to get on the rides.

A single ticket costs $1.50 while a batch of 20 tickets is $30. A bunch of fifty tickets is $60 – which entitles the holder to an additional free ride.

Tickets can be purchased at the venue.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
