Fourth of July on the Charles River with the Boston Pops

Summer barely started, and already the heat wave has swept across the Tennessee Valley with up to 100 degrees Farenheit one day last week. Up north, it is a different story. New England was experiencing temperatures in the high 50s, with lots of rain. Hopefully, we will all get a break from mother nature when America celebrates its birthday on the fourth of July.

Boston Pops July 4 concert and fireworks
We love a good fireworks show, so July 4 usually find us among the crowd somewhere. Our marina actually puts out a very good fireworks display (fireworks are legal in TN), but each time we were not around. This year, we will miss it again as we opt to enjoy the festivities with Pops on the River in downtown Chattanooga.

Our favorite fourth of July celebration of all times is our beloved Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular on the Charles River. The last time we celebrated July 4th in Boston was in 2000. Here's a clip taken from our old Mai Thai back then. Enjoy and Happy 4th of July!

  1. Hi Eileen,

    While I've never actually been to the Boston Pops July 4th celebration, I used to watch it on TV when I lived in New Hampshire.

    This is my first 4th of July here in South Florida so I'll miss the Pops concert. But Delray Beach has so many wonderful things planned for the holiday including fireworks out over the ocean!

    Enjoy your holiday and thanks for the slide show!
