Come aboard the Battleship to watch a parade of boats decorated for the holiday season with music, lights and lots of fun for the entire family. For the first time ever, the parade route is extended and boats will pass the Battleship New Jersey on the Camden Waterfront! The boats will then cruise by Winterfest on Penn’s Landing and loop back around to the Independence Seaport Museum. Guests can enjoy holiday music, narration by Steve Nikazy and even food and bar concessions on the deck of the Battleship!
To come aboard for the Parade of Lights, you can take a Fire Power tour, which will be available until 5pm on Dec. 10, or make a $10 donation at the Ticket Office, open until 5:30pm on Dec. 10.
The Battleship New Jersey will remember the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor with a T-6 Texan Trainer propeller planes fly over, followed by the casting of a memorial wreath upon the Delaware River and the playing of TAPS. The fly-over, weather permitting, will take place at 9am and the wreath casting and TAPS will take place on the forecastle (forward deck). All guests are invited on the forecastle to attend.
