Reserve a Swan Boat on July 4

Are you looking to enjoy Fireworks at the Fountain from a swan boat? 

Swan boats are open to the public July 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for regular use. They reopen in the evening for a limited VIP experience. From 7 to 10 p.m., select parties will be chosen to take part in this unique experience where they can take a seat and relax at the dock before the fireworks.

With just ten swan boats available, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy the city’s annual Fourth of July celebration in comfort and style. Because this is a popular experience, we will have a random drawing for the chance to have this experience.

The fee for each evening swan boat use is $90. The deadline to enter your name for the random drawing is June 24.
