4th of July Blast at Patriots Point in Charleston, South Carolina
Every year the 4th of July Blast draws a huge crowd to Patriots Point on the Mount Pleasant side of Charleston Harbor. The stories of glory and triumph that shaped the U.S come to life at Patriots Point in Charleston and maybe even more so during the 4th of July celebration.
The New York Times calls the 4th of July Blast “…one of the best Fourth of July parties…” and Patriots Point is named alongside the famous events in Washington, Boston and Philadelphia, and rightfully so.
The Annual Fourth of July Blast is hosted by Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum and the Town of Mount Pleasant and the event is the ultimate 4th of July celebration and takes place on Wednesday July 4, 2012.
The festivities include a fireworks display launched from the flight deck of the USS YORKTOWN, a World War II-era aircraft carrier. The USS YORKTOWN saw action in the battles of the Philippine Sea and Iwo Jima, now it is an attraction belonging to the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. This year, premier seating is offered on USS Yorktown for $10 per person.
