On Saturday, I attended the 8th Annual Jazz Age Picnic on Governor’s Island. I am a HUGE fan of this event and have attended the past 3 years. A day spent dressed up in vintage threads, picnicing and dancing to a fabulous jazz band on an historic island is my idea of a great time. This year’s festivities did not disappoint. My only complaint was the day seemed to go too fast this year. I felt like I took very few pictures (compared to previous years) but I guess I was just having too much fun. That, or too much gin and Pimm’s (not mixed together). Which reminds me, if you’ve never had a Pimm’s cup made by a Brit you are missing out in life. Few things are more refreshing on a summer day.
Here is a little slideshow of the pics I did manage to take. Many of them from the Charleston dance contest. The dancers were the bee’s knees. Keep your eye out in the gallery for a few gems. Including a mother and infant in matching pink fringe and Lady Gaga. Ok, I don’t really know if it’s Lady Gaga, but she looks so much like her that I’m calling her that. You decide.
As we rushed to get the last ferry back to Brooklyn, we took a few more pics.
I can hardly wait until the next picnic this August and another Pimm’s cup. Thanks to my beloved and my awesome friends for making it such a spectacular day.
If you want to see my pics from last year’s celebration they’re posted here.
