A number of events will be taking place: a water flotilla, actress Sigourney Weaver reading Lazarus' poem and a naturalization ceremony for 125 candidates for citizenship. The U.S. Secretary of the Interior will present gifts of friendship to the French Government and a choir from the Brooklyn High School of the Arts will perform “Huddled Masses” from the off-Broadway-bound musical "Liberty," along with other performances.
According to the Brooklyn Eagle, five webcams will be turned on in the torch tonight. See the Eagle for today's schedule of events.
The National Park Service has been tweeting "125 tweets in 125 days." Since June 26th they've tweeted about notable events since the Statue's dedication in 1886. Today is the last tweet!
