WHEN: Saturday, July 3, from 7pm to 10pm (fireworks start around 9:15pm).
WHO’S INVITED: Anyone who wants to reserve a spot and join us on Nantucket/LV-112’s weather deck, with friends and family, to watch a spectacular fireworks display in Boston’s inner harbor. Nantucket/LV-112’s berth has one of the best views of Boston’s vibrant city skyline from the East Boston waterfront.
WHAT TO BRING: Picnic supper, your favorite beverages, beach/lawn chairs to sit on the decks of Nantucket/LV-112, which will remain at the dock. We’ll supply the ship, panoramic views and lively music. The ship’s powerful rotating light beacon will be activated just before the fireworks begin.
WHY: We want to show you our restoration progress. Plus, this is a fundraising event for LV-112, for which we still have much work to do; visit our Facebook page. The ship’s restoration solely depends on the generous contributions of corporations, private foundations, federal, state and municipal grants, maritime enthusiasts and individuals such as you.
RESERVATIONS: We request a $25 donation per person. Tickets can be purchased by clicking on EventBrite.
