The photo above comes from an August 26th article in The Brooklyn Paper written by Meridith Deliso entitled Get rollin'! Unicycle Fest returns on Sept.2 The article briefly describes the 2011 festival as it was about to happen. The same article without the photo appeared in the Courier Life's Brooklyn Daily.

This second image comes from the The Wall Street Journal in an September 3rd article entitled For One, and for All written by V. L. Hendrickson. This is a more comprehensive article about the 3 day event with quotes from Keith Nelson of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, David Stone founder of the New York Unicycle Club and, Kyle Peterson alias The Brooklyn Juggler who is best known for fighting against the City of New York for being ticketed for legally riding his unicycle.

This article written by Ken Derry,  gives extensive coverage to the activities that took place on Governors Island.

Many more websites that promote events around the New York city have given mention to this years unicycle festival. We would like to thank them for helping to promote unicycling in New York and this year's unicycle festival. We hope that even more sites and sponsors will give us recognition for next year's annual event.
