Scenes From 2013 Roosevelt Island Day, Games, Rides, Petting Zoo, Concerts & Relay For Life - Good Times

A very nice afternoon spent yesterday at Roosevelt Island Day. Come take a walk with me.

Here are some more scenes.

Flower and vegetable plantings at the Living Library Garden behind 504 Main Street,


and train rides,

Half Moon thrills,

petting zoo,

face painting,


popcorn and cotton candy,

and the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life at the Octagon Field.

Roosevelt Island elected officials were on hand too including Assembly Member Micah Kellner who tweeted:

and NYC Council Candidate for Roosevelt Island Ben Kallos was here donating to the  blood drive.

There was a surprise musical performance by indie symphonic rock band Mother Falcon,

a wonderful performance on the Sing For Hope Piano by Lionel Yu

and the nightime concert by FDR Drive Band with this finale.

Good job by Roosevelt Island Day Sponsors RIOC, the Roosevelt Island Youth Program

 and Urban American.
