Bocce and Bugs in Colonels Row


There is literally something for everyone on Governors Island this weekend.

Put your lawn skills to the test on Saturday and head over to Colonels Row and play some bocce. After a game, listen to the guest deejays,and grab some food or a beer at the beer/wine tent.

If cars are more your thing, you are in luck! On Sunday, the Volkswagen Traffic Jam comes to the Island featuring a vibrant line-up of nearly 100 Beetles, buses, dune buggies, Things, and other original VW’s circa 1950’s - 1970’s.

And, Sextant Works is featuring several workshops and master classes for those that want to learn something new.

Ferries are free until noon from Manhattan and Brooklyn so hop on the boat, grab a bike and an ice cream, take in the views and enjoy all that is happening here.
