Cadets from Army will face off with students from the Midshipmen from Navy during a Tug-of-War competition on the pier of the Battleship New Jersey on Friday, Dec. 8 at 3pm. Guests are welcome to attend the competition for free on the pier.
The Tug-of-War is part of the annual Patriot Games — a two-day, five-event competition between teams of Cadets and the Midshipmen that take place in various Philadelphia landmarks. Other events scheduled are a Rocky Relay, December 8 at 8:30am at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Leadership Reaction Course at the National Constitution Center at 10 AM, the Pull-Up Challenge, December 8 at noon at The Shops at Liberty Place; and the finale on Saturday, with the Stadium Obstacle Relay, December 9 at 1:15pm at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Patriot Games lead up to the annual Army vs Navy football game on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Past Tug-of-Wars at the Battleship also featured both academies’ bands, spirit squads, mascots and even an Army tank!
Arrrrr…there will be marauders and buccaneers aboard the Battleship on Saturday, July 14 from 10am to 4pm. Meet pirates, check out pirate artifacts and displays, and even purchase some pirate merchandise!
All free to experience when you purchase a Firepower Tour of the Battleship!
Further, any little buccaneers who come dressed as a pirate — even if it’s an eye patch or pirate hat — will get 20% off the price of a tour of the Big J! Offer good Saturday, July 14 only.
