People-Power Event - July 23th

Save the Date!

What is a people powered event? Ever wondered how many kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, peddle boats and row-boats are on Big Island Pond?  Our third annual “people-powered” event will held on Sunday, July 23rd at 11:00.  Each year we increase particpation and quirkyness. In 2016 we had 152 boats (1 pink flamingo) with 178 people, 10 dogs 1 wolf spider and 2 fake ducks,   We gather in Johnson’s Cove – the big circular cove just south of the Governor’s Island bridge and pass through the bridge for an “official” count.   
Looking forward to seeing you?
