The Battleship remembers our military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice with a memorial service, conducted by the Bishop Eustace Knights of Columbus. The ceremony, which will take place on the forecastle (forward deck) and is free to attend, will include a live performance of TAPS and the casting of a memorial wreath into the Delaware River.
Tickets will be available at the Battleship Ticket Office for both the 6pm and Midnight New Year’s Eve fireworks shows at the Battleship! .
We’ll have music, food concessions and bar service. We will open her decks two hours before each show – 4:00 pm for the 6:00 pm fireworks show and 10:00 pm for the midnight show.
Come aboard for just a $10 donation per person.
All proceeds go to the on-going restoration of the Battleship, a non-profit museum and memorial.
Fire the 5-inch gun at the conclusion of the 6:00 pm and Midnight Fireworks! We’ll offer chances for guests to pull the trigger and fire this historic gun on New Year’s Eve!
