Boston Pops and Fireworks

While almost every city in the US celebrates the Fourth of July in some fashion, none is more renowned than the Boston Pops and Fireworks display. The Boston Pops has entertained its citizens and visitors with its music since the 1930s.

If you plan to visit Boston for the Fourth of July weekend, you are in for a special treat. Beginning on July 1st and continuing through the 4th, Boston holds as many as 200 events in celebration of this special day.

It starts with the raising of the flag at City Hall Plaza followed by a parade along Tremont to the Old State House. This is just the beginning of an exciting day that is capped with the Boston Pops Orchestra’s concert and fireworks show at the Charles River Esplanade.

A concert that has been seen by millions of people and is also broadcast on TV, you can enjoy the brilliance of the Boston Pops as they perform musical numbers that have been the mainstay of Boston’s celebratory heritage for decades. This two hour concert is followed by a half hour fireworks display, with the finale set to the music of the “1812 Overture.”

For accommodations within walking distance to the Charles River Esplanade, it is recommended that you check out the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

Another alternative you may wish to consider is to make reservations for the Boston Dinner Cruise. This four hour cruise leaves from the Commonwealth Pier at the World Trade Center in the Seaport District at 7:30 PM.

With their all-you-can-eat buffets with delicious choices prepared on board, you can enjoy such fare as beef, poultry, and seafood with fresh vegetables, salad, rolls with butter, and dessert.

Along with dinner, you can enjoy sparking entertainment provided on the ship and view the fireworks display all at the same time. The Spirit of Boston cruises as far south as Castle Island/Fort Independence and as far north as the Mystic River along the Boston skyline.
