Gun Salutes, Rum and Fireworks for the July 4th Weekend at the Battleship

WHEN:          Saturday, July 3 and Sunday, July 4


WHAT:          The Battleship will be celebrate our nation’s birthday with Gun Salutes, Battleship Rum and Fireworks

this weekend!


Guests touring the Battleship on Saturday and Sunday can make a $50 donation and pull the trigger

to fire the portside (Philadelphia-side) saluting gun each day between 12pm and 2pm.  The gun salutes,

performed every Saturday throughout the summer, have been added for Independence Day so guests

aboard the ship could celebrate the 4th with a bang!


The Battleship will also introduce Battleship Rum.  Created by Pine Tavern Distillery in Salem County,

NJ, the honey-flavored rum in a colorful Battleship-themed label tastes great for sipping or can be mixed

for unique drinks!  Samples of the rum for adults will be poured by the owners of Pine Tavern on Sunday,

July 4, prior to the fireworks show at 9:30pm.  A sampling table will be set up next to the bar for Sunday



The Battleship Rum will be distributed by Kramer Beverage to liquor stores throughout South Jersey.

A portion of the sale of each bottle will be donated to the Battleship, a non-profit museum and memorial.


The Battleship will open her historic decks for guests to watch the fireworks, presented by Camden County,

over the Delaware River on Sunday, July 4th.  Just a $10 donation will get you aboard for live music, food

concessions, bar service and the chance to fire the ship’s saluting gun after the finale of the fireworks!
