SHAKE + MOVE a media company will provide a special photo booth that will enable our visitors and community members to take pictures and make postcards to commemorate the day’s events.
Here is one more fun event everyone can participate in, our Sailor’s Mailbox.
We are calling all Schools, Veterans and Community members to join us in the Fleet Week NY Music Festival Sailors Mailbox!
Let’s show our patriotism from the shores of Staten Island. The one thing that brings a warm smile to a service-members face beside music is a letter, card or postcard thanking them for their dedicated service to our country. We are asking schools, veterans groups, and all community members to write a note of appreciation to the members of our armed forces that will be visiting during Fleet Week NY. Last year we had over 500 letter that went to the ships both here in Staten Island and in NYC.
The Minthorne Group – Flagship Brewery, Goal Mine and DaddyO’s, and our NY State Assemblyman Matthew Titone which helps to sponsor the event – will be collecting the mail. Assemblyman Matthew Titone office is located at
853 Forest Ave, Staten Island, NY 10310. The day of the Music Festival – May 27, 2018 postcards will also be available for patrons to fill out. All mail will be given to the US Ships on Sunday night.
The Fleet Week NY Music Festival is on Minthorne St. (1 block From Bay and Victory Blvd). The street will be closed for the event, parking is available on local streets. Easy to get to by train -Thompkinsville Station and bus.
What better way to spend a free fun-filled afternoon, Music, reasonably priced specialty food, fresh fruit delights, beverages, snacks and great beer!
