Excitement on the Esplanade with the Boston Pops

We couldn't let you go into 4th of July weekend without giving you an update on the Boston Pops performance! The fireworks spectacular and concert on the Esplanade is Beantown's most famous patriotic celebration. This year, Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops will be joined by singers Melissa Etheridge, Andy Grammer, and Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr., who promised that fans of the hip-hop musical would not be disappointed with the show!

If you want to avoid the largest crowds, you can also see the musical acts sans fireworks at the Pops rehearsal show on Monday night from 8PM to 10PM If you’re set on getting a spot on the Esplanade for the 4th, get there early. Gates open at 9AM, and the lawn fills up throughout the day. The traditional fighter jet military flyover in coordination with the “Star Spangled Banner,” will open the evening’s Boston Pops program, and a spectacular 20-minute fireworks show designed by Grucci Fireworks, and accompanied by the music of the Boston Pops and other popular music of the past and present, will bring the celebration to an end.
