On July 4th, the hottest ticket was to Governor's Island for Captain America's picnic and fireworks show to benefit the Veterans. It was a who's who of superheroes, notable state and local politicians, celebrities, and a lot of Vets who wanted to meet and greet Steve Rogers.
Governor's island had ample space with plenty of walkways, set just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city so close nearby. For those that couldn't fly, the easiest way to reach the island was by ferry. It's a family friendly picnic, and people have arrived with children and spouses in tow.
There are plenty of tables and chairs, as well as games and eating competitions. A brightly lit stage had been set up for live entertainment. Plenty of food is being served, the standard fare of hamburgers and hot dogs, and sandwiches, with desserts and drinks galore.
Fireworks start at 9:20 PM. Expect a really big show for the star spangled man with a plan, and to celebrate Independence Day!
