A Local Oasis (including Bocce & Baseball)
Does a vintage a baseball game or a Bocce bonanza spark your competitive spirit? If so, mark your calendar the weekends of August 22nd and 29th.
The newly revitalized Governor’s Island (only 10 minutes from Manhattan and Brooklyn by ferry) will come alive with 32 lawn Bocce teams vying for the title of 2015 RECESS Lawn Bocce Champion at Colonel’s Row for their annual showdown. There are plenty of public courts so everyone can get involved. For those watching and enjoying the festivities, DJ’s, organic food trucks and craft beers on tap will be close at hand.
Sunday August 29th see how baseball used to be played when the Gothams take on the New York Mutuals at the Parade Ground.
