KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTO | There are plenty of rides at the Greenport Memorial Day Carnival.

Even under cloudy skies on a windy day, the sweet smell of cotton candy in the air at Greenport Fire Department’s annual Memorial Day carnival is a sure sign the of start of summer is upon the North Fork.

The carnival is a fundraiser for Greenport Fire Department’s Star Hose company. In the past, the proceeds have gone toward the creation of Larry Tuthill Park, located in the village near the Shelter Island Ferry terminal.

The carnival concludes Monday.
