Due to overwhelming demand for tickets to the December 16, 2017 Commissioning Ceremony of the USS Little Rock LCS 9 at Canalside, the Commissioning Committee has been forced to end ticket registration.
“We have seen an overwhelming request for tickets and capacity for this event at Canalside has been reached.” commented Maurice L. Naylon III, chairman of the local Commissioning Committee. “With nearly 9,000 people requesting tickets, we have reached the limit for attendance given the layout of Canalside for the commissioning of the USS Little Rock LCS 9.”
Although tickets for the Commissioning Ceremony on December 16th are SOLD OUT, the general public is able to see the USS Little Rock LCS 9 while the ship is docked at Canalside for Commissioning Week December 8–17. More information and a schedule of events for Commissioning Week are available at www.usslittlerocklcs9.org.
Canalside will be open during the Commissioning Week so the general public can view LCS 9 without a ticket. Canalside streets will be closed to vehicle traffic and visitors are encourage to use the NFTA Metro Rail to get to Canalside for Commissioning Week. Canalside will be a secured area and anyone visiting Canalside during Commissioning Week will be required to pass through TSA type security screening.
