Editor's Pick: 

Note: This was originally supposed to open on July 6 but the debut was pushed to July 13. Fête Paradiso, the world’s first traveling festival of vintage carnival rides and carousels, will make its American debut on Governors Island. The rare, museum-quality collection, which includes a diverse array of attractions from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as carousels, flying swings and a pipe organ, will be available for the public to ride and enjoy every weekend from July 6 – September 29.

The extraordinary festival of artisan-crafted, vintage carousels and carnival rides includes  a bicycle carousel from the late 19th century,  early 20th century Music-Hall Ball Guzzler, a carnival game that features life-size caricatures of Josephine Baker, Charlie Chaplin and other celebrities of the time and a bumper car pavilion from 1900 that has been transformed into a beer garden featuring food reminiscent of a French carnival will be served by New York’s legendary French bistro Le Gamin.
