HOW TO GET THERE
Governors Island - Parade Grounds
July 30, noon - 3:00 p.m.
Visit govisland.com/info/ferry for details on how to travel to the island. Ferries leave every 30 minutes from Manhattan (starting at 10:00 a.m.) and Brooklyn (starting at 11:00 a.m.). Ferries are free before 11:30 a.m. and $2 roundtrip per adult thereafter. Children under 13 years old ride free.
Our group will meet at the Parade Grounds between noon and 3:00 p.m. Look for balloons and signs to point you in the right direction.
What to BRING
We encourage you to bring a good blanket or easily transportable chair to relax on for the afternoon. Be sure to pack a lunch and beverages. However, there are many delicious food trucks available on the island if you'd prefer to purchase your lunch onsite. Check out the food truck options in advance.
Remember that alcohol and grilling are not permitted.
What to DO
Our time together will be dedicated to just relaxing and having fun as one large church family. Feel free to participate in some of the shared games we'll have at the parade grounds or plan your own activities with friends and family. Governors Island offers many fun opportunities to enjoy the sun like resting in the hammocks or bike riding around the island.
If you would like to take on leading a game or activity with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how you can become your parish captain.
