4th of July Fireworks: Boston/Cambridge EsplanadeMaestro Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra for Boston’s 40th annual Fourth of July celebration, sponsored by Boston-based insurer Liberty Mutual Group and broadcast locally on WBZ.

Grammy award winner Susan Tedeschi, singer/songwriter Howie Day, Ayla Brown and Ellis Hall will perform at the Boston fireworks spectacular concert this year

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.

Pops Concert
We're in Birmingham Alabama and have no television coverage of the concert & fireworks. Plenty of displays in this area but it's not Boston! Sad day!
please televise this nationally!!
We're up here in Alaska. We so look forward to the Boston Pops 4th of July Celebration every year! Someone needs to put this on national television somehow! It's always the best celebration nationwide! Maybe PBS will pick it up and televise it later. They are already doing the Capitol 4th with Bary Manilo, not nearly as good a show!
4th of July Fireworks-Boston
This 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.
