The Empire State Fair aims to provide fun for the whole family at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale.

In addition to the classics like roller coasters, the carousel and Ferris wheel, Dorso says there are also circuses, pig races, a petting zoo and more.

The fair is open every night through Sunday, May 20.
