All are invited to view the Boston Harbor Fireworks from Nantucket Lightship/LV-112 on June 30, from 7-10 p.m.
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 Lightship/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, and the ship’s powerful rotating light beacon will be activated just before the fireworks begin.
WHY: This is a fundraising event for LV-112, for which we still have much restoration work to do; visit our Facebook page. The ship’s future solely depends on the generous contributions of corporations, private foundations, maritime enthusiasts and individuals such as you.
