Annual July Fourth Fireworks and Boston Pops Concert Celebrates Past and Present




A spectacular display of fireworks will again illuminate the sky over the Charles River for hundreds of thousands of spectators, in Boston, on July 4. A free Boston Pops concert at 8:30 p.m., at the Hatch Shell, accompanies the annual light show, featuring conductor Keith Lockhart leading the Pops orchestra and special guests. The concert will include the musical numbers “Even the Stars Fall 4 U” by Keith Urban, “Roar” by Katy Perry and “Let It Go”, the popular song from the movie Frozen.

Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to find a viewing spot on either side of the Charles River. Those wishing to see the concert should make their way to the grassy area in front of the Hatch Shell as early as 9 a.m., on Independence Day. Many of the prime riverside viewing spots for fireworks fill up by late morning or early afternoon. Another option is to attend the free rehearsal concert, in the same location with smaller crowds, the evening of July 3.
