MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- Patriots Point will once again be offering seating on the flight deck of the USS Yorktown this year and tickets are expected to sell out.

Tickets for the Flight Deck are limited and will be sold on the Patriots Point website starting Wednesday, June 5.

For $20 per person ($10 for children 11 and under), guests 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.

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.

"Last year marked the first year the museum offered this special seating, and the tickets sold out in just over three weeks," Burdette continued.  "Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback received, we anticipate that tickets this year will sell out even sooner and encourage everyone to purchase their tickets early."

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.

There is a $10 per vehicle parking fee for all who wish to park at Patriots Point.
