Photos From Jazz Age Lawn Party

It was the 10th anniversary of the Jazz Age Lawn Party, and I don’t see how it could get any more perfect.

Once more, Michael Arenella has pulled off another fantastic weekend on Governors Island. The Brooklyn bandleader and his team produced a fantastic event that had a wonderful turnout. The weather cooperated and it was a warm and sunny weekend for live jazz, shows, cocktails, and special events. I’m a fan of the Court of Pie and the pie baking contest.

I talked to people that had come from Europe for the weekend to attend. The next Jazz Age Lawn Party is August 15 and 16, 2015, and tickets are available here.

More news on this event soon. Here is my photo gallery.
