Back In Time

Part of my Summer 2011 to do list was to visit Governors Island right here in good ol' NYC. Making sure I got my summer started right I was able to cross that off my list this past weekend. YEAH to accomplishing goals!!! I took a step back in time attending the Jazz-Age Lawn Party on Governors Island. The event was held both Saturday and Sunday and I managed to make it out on the very first day as it was a hop, skip and a free ferry away. There was good food and drinks, a sprinkle of vintage vendors and good sportsmanship to the many that showed up in costumes. I uploaded the pictures in sepia for an added nostalgic touch. Enjoy!

Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra. Note to self must get one of these hats that the band members were wearing.

Additionally, if this looks like something you would enjoy attending, the next Jazz-Age Lawn party on Governor's Island will be the weekend of August 20-21st. Make sure to wear a costume, you'll feel left out if you don't. If not there are many other exciting events happening over at Governor's Island so do make the time to have a visit this summer.
