Dreamland Amusements, a company that provides rides, games, and special attractions, will bring tons of carnival fun to multiple locations on Long Island this summer. Some of their upcoming events include Long Island Fun Fest, Empire State Fair, and more.

Owners Kathy and Bob DeStefano, of Stony Brook, are excited for the company’s first full summer season since 2019. They shut down operations in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and ran on a limited schedule last year, as some restrictions were still in place.

“Needless to say, the last few years have been difficult for carnival and other amusement and family entertainment operators, but it has been uplifting to see so many familiar faces come out to enjoy our events this year,” Bob said. “We’re looking forward to being on Long Island this year.”
