FYI - WEEKEND FESTIVAL! NYC 19TH CENTURY EXTRAVAGANZA

Information, courtesy of member, Joe, thank you for sharing!

This is an event that will take place over the last weekend of April, running from 26 - 28th. It looks like an interesting and varied schedule.

I'm hoping to be able to make it on the Saturday in time for the fashion show, however at this time I'm sharing this information as an FYI. Should I firm it up then I'm happy to cite or at least try to (!) a meeting time and place eg "meeting spot over by the 19th century hat and dress, two feet from the blade of grass..." (as in not sure of specific spot!) ***NOTE: I've made the event the duration of the beginning through to the end. Perhaps members planning to attend RSVP and then as the event draws near can share if desired when they plan to attend***
DESCRIPTION OF EVENT
