Group Photos: 2:30pm to 3pm
We’ll gather near the fountain between 2:30pm and 3pm for group photographs and then we’ll proceed on an organized stroll. The fountain can be found just over the bridge after you pass the amusement park area.
You can sail to the Island at any time of day and enjoy the many activities available including bike rentals, the amusement park, etc. There are food venders on the island or you’re welcome to bring your own picnic.
The only cost associated with the event is the ticket for the ferry ride.
This promises to be a fun filled, relaxing, welcoming event for those who love to dress up and make friends. Don’t miss it! And be sure to RSVP so we have an idea of how many people will be joining us!
Q. What if it rains that day?
A. If there is light/intermittent rain on the day of the event, we will proceed. Bring an umbrella and/or raincoat! However, if looks to be really pouring or storming, we will cancel the event. Sign up for updates and follow us on social media (Facebook and Instagram especially) to stay informed.
Q. What should I wear?
A. While many people may choose to dress in a vintage style, everyone is welcome to interpret “style” in their own way.
This is a chance to express your personal style in whatever way says smart, dapper, or polished to you. Think “Sunday best” and however you interpret that is really up to you.
Q. How much is the event? Do I have to purchase tickets?
A. The event is just a gathering of like-minded people in a public space so it’s free and completely open. However, it would be helpful if you RSVP for a free virtual “ticket” to give us an idea of how many are attending, and that way we can send you updates about weather, etc..
The only cost is the ferry to Centre Island. Tickets are inexpensive ($8.75).
