Black Dragon Friday on the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey
Nov 24 all-day
Black Dragon Friday on the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey  | Camden | New Jersey | United States

You may know the shopping day after Thanksgiving as Black Friday, but on the Battleship, we refer to Friday, Nov. 24 as Black Dragon Friday!

During WWII, because of the ship’s dark painted hull and when she fired her guns it looked like she was breathing fire, the Battleship earned the nickname “The Black Dragon.”

On Friday, Nov. 24, the Battleship Gift Shop will celebrate “Black Dragon Friday.”  Guests will get an extra 10% off all purchases that day at the Gift Shop, open from 10am to 4pm.  The Battleship will be open for tours on Black Dragon Friday from 9:30am to 3pm.

Comcast Cares Day Aboard the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey  | Camden | New Jersey | United States
 Employees from Comcast offices in the Philadelphia area will spend Friday, April 20 at the Battleship — not to take a tour, but rather to volunteer to paint, chip, clean, landscape, and more on and around the ship.
 Last year, several hundred Comcast employees helped the Battleship with several projects, including moving the mooring lines off the pier.
 The board, staff and volunteers of the Battleship salutes and thanks all Comcast employees for volunteering to help the Big J!
