The funnest -- and most delicious -- party of the summer is just a short ferry ride away. The Governors Island Music & Seafood Beach Party is a celebration of warm-weather chillaxing in NYC. Headliners include tributes to two titans of summertime tunes: Bob Marley tribute CCB and Jimmy Buffet tribute Jimmy Kenny Band. Enjoy freshly prepared lobster rolls, oysters, shrimp cocktail and clams plus delicious craft beer while you grab some rays along the gorgeous sandy beach and take in Instagramable views of the East River, Manhattan and New Jersey. Set at the waterfront Governors Island Beach Club, this all-ages beach bash features performances by 10 bands on two stages -- along with the opportunity to dig into a tasty seafood platter (which can either be pre-purchased with your ticket or bought onsite while supplies last).
