Nunley's Carousel
Bayville Mini Golf (Scream Park)
NY Hall of Science (Flushing Meadow/Carona Park) , I think there is also an art museum and the old 64 world's fair globe there too.
Does the Whaling Museum in Cold Spring Harbor still exist?
In Oysterbay there is the Oysterfest.
In Mill Neck there is the Apple Festival.
