SOLD OUT: July 4th tickets for USS Yorktown


MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- Patriots Point once again offered seating on the USS Yorktown for the Fourth of July. Flight deck tickets are sold out but there is still room for landside viewing of the fireworks.

Those who were able to scoop up tickets will have special access to the USS Yorktown starting at 6 p.m., with catered food and beverage available for purchase, as well as live music and activities for the kids.

Two bands on the flight deck will rotate playing live music throughout the evening: East Coast Party Band and The Explorers Club.

Once the sun goes down, fireworks will light up the harbor, shot from a barge in the Cooper River.

Lawn chairs are encouraged for guests on the Flight Deck; but no coolers or personal food will be permitted.

"Each year, Patriots Point is proud to welcome more than 40,000 Lowcountry residents and visitors to celebrate the Fourth of July alongside some of our nation's most historic war ships," said Patriots Point Executive Director Mac Burdette.

Other than a $10 parking fee, the celebration is free for those who wish to join the celebration from the landside of the museum.

Food and beverage from local vendors will be available for purchase and there will be live music and entertainment for the kids in the parking area.

Four bands will be on the landside viewing area. They are Heartfelt Hinges, Andrew Scotchie and the River Rats, Headrush and Stained Glass Wall.

Kids on land can take part in a scavenger hunt, hit the jump castle and inflatable slide, build a plane, see animals on display and scale a climbing wall.
