There’s something so picturesque about Spring in The City. It’s finally time for us to shed a layer or two, put our winter coats and boots away, and get out and enjoy everything that comes along with springtime. And what better way to do that than to explore all the festivals that come our way this time of year? If you’re looking for ways to have some fun in the sun, we’ve got a list of great places to do just that!
Spring Events in NYC That You Won't Want to Miss!
The Jazz Age Lawn Party
Now that Gatsby is all the rage, so much that ‘Modern Gatsby’ is on Macys’ Spring Trend radar, it’s the perfect time to mosey on down to Governor’s Island for this prohibition-era soiree. In 2011 and 2012, the Jazz Age Lawn Party was named one of the most memorable events of the year by New York Times. Learn to Lindy Hop and have your vintage portrait taken while your junior gents and flapperettes win prizes at the carnival games all across the lawn. There’ll be fashion shows, a Charleston competition, pie contest, and so much more! The party will be held on two separate weekends; June 14 & 15, and August 16 & 17. For more information, visit the Jazz Age Lawn Party website!
The Amazing Fleet Week Scavenger Hunt
For four hours, participants of the Amazing New York Scavenger Hunt – Fleet Week race throughout the city to solve clues and overcome obstacles on their quest to complete as many tasks as possible. In honor of the sailors, marines, coast guardsmen, and other sea service members that Fleet Week is meant to commemorate, the scavenger hunt has a maritime theme to it, too. The scavenger hunt is operated digitally, through an app called Scan-Quest, and every team needs to have at least one smartphone in order to participate. Register on the Amazing Fleet Week Scavenger Hunt event page; the hunt takes place on May 25!
