4th of July Fireworks: Boston/Cambridge Esplanade
Stay Tuned for 2013 Concert & Host information
The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will conclude on July 4 with a 21-minute pyrotechnic extravaganza from Rozzi Fireworks, of Loveland, Ohio. This year’s Spectacular keeps alive several of the Boston holiday traditions including the Pops’ now classic Independence Day rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” which features real cannons and the live ringing of area church bells.
And, of course, The Spectacular will be capped off by a magnificent fireworks array that fills the skies above Boston with a stunning exhibition of color and breathtaking pageantry. It is best to arrive early (before noon) if you wish to find a good place to sit.

Pack a lunch, water, sunscreen, blankets, and things to keep the kids occupied. Best to take public transportation as parking will be scarce.

4th of July Fireworks-BostonThis was a wonderful display. The music was superbly orchestrated with the brilliant bursts of color. My question is, ' who was the female vocalist singing the National Anthem at the end of the display or for the grand finale.' I have a hunch, but would like some verification.
