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!

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.
