New York Metro area Picnic, Sunday June 17, Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ

This year, the Statue of Liberty and NYC skyline were the backdrop our New York Metro area picnic, held on Fathers Day, Sunday, June 17,from 10am to 4pm, at Liberty State Park, in Jersey City, NJ.

We had a fun filled day with a record attendance of 58 adults and children. The weather cooperated for the day, with the sea breeze helping cool us off. We had jalebi-gathiya, bagels, and chai for breakfast. We grilled sweet corn and set up a fresh sandwich bar for lunch. For desert we had chilled watermelon and ice cream.
Kids took the opportunity to fly kites with guidance from the adults, and many people enjoyed walking along the waterfront.
