Penn's Landing Fireworks

Gazela is hands down one of the best venues in Philadelphia to watch fireworks and we’re inviting you to join us for the evenings of Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2! There is no better place to celebrate the United States's Independence Day Weekend than aboard our historic sailing ship right on the waterfront. You will have a picture perfect view of the fireworks along the river with the breathtaking silhouette of the ship’s rigging around you.
