A very nice afternoon spent at Roosevelt Island Day. Despite a few drops, the rain stayed away and kids of all ages had alot of fun. Here are some scenes.
Some credit for keeping the rain away has to go to the Third Wheel Band who performed Let It Shine when the weather was looking doubtful.
Stay tuned for more pictures from 2012 Roosevelt Island Day.
Update 6/10 - Roosevelt Island Day had many different types of activities. There were games,
and train rides,
strong man and mermaid posing,
a test of strength,
and balloon making.
There was also food. Ice cream Dippin' Dots
and cotton candy.
There was music from the Third Wheel Band
and blood donations too.
