The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is known as the premier Independence Day celebration in the nation. Each year since its inception, hundreds of thousands of people come from all over the country to the banks of the Charles River to celebrate America's birthday! Led by Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops, this year will feature celebrity guest performances by The Beach Boys, Megan Hilty, the cast of The Phantom of the Opera, and Boston Children's Chorus!
This year's Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will keep alive several of the Boston holiday traditions including the Pops' now classic Independence Day rendition of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, which features real cannons, the live ringing of area church bells and fireworks, and "The Stars and Stripes Forever," which includes the ceremonial American flag drop and confetti shot. 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.
