Parisian Ball (Fete Paradiso) at Governor's Island this Saturday!

I'm new to the group and wanted to introduce myself!
I'm also suggesting one of the coolest-sounding, unique events is happening this weekend: PARISIAN BALL (Fete Paradiso)!
VINTAGE carnival rides and carousels from the 19th century! A whole island is transported back in time, and across cultures to celebrate Bastille Day. There will be musical performances.

Earlybird Tickets are already sold out! But you can still get tickets from their site.

Free ferries, and the island's closing time (normally 7pm) will be extended for this special event! The party will go past midnight!

We can meet up in Hoboken, or meet up there. What do you think?
Here are the full details from their website:

"Do you believe in Magic?...
