This Friday is the last summer Friday to watch a movie under the stars on the ship’s flight deck! Dunkirk (2017) will be the showing for this Labor Day Friday. Deck opens at 7PM and closes at 8:30PM to start the showing. This is a first come first serve event. If you are an Intrepid Museum member you can reserve your spot, so join today! This event is weather permitting. Alcohol is not allowed!
One of NYC’s largest music festivals is happening this weekend! HURRY GET YOUR TICKETS! Saturday is completely sold out, but there are still options for Friday and Sunday. This is a great way to end your summer. Technically fall starts September 22, but as we all know Labor Day is the unofficial “end” of summer, especially in NYC – bye bye summer Fridays… Anyway, spend your last summer weekend on an Island listening to music!
