Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra's 9th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party

The Jazz Age Lawn Party celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with some Prohibition–era delights. Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra headline the old-timey affair, which also features a Charleston dance contest, a 1920s motorcar expo, tug-of-war, vintage portraits, dance lessons, carnival games and prizes in the Kidland area, plus a ten-girl tribute to the Ziegfeld Follies. Families, who are encouraged to dress in their finest 20s garb, can pack their own picnic lunch or buy treats like lemonade sodas and ice cream. All ages.
