The 4th of July in Boston: Pops Cruise & Concert, Notes
Boston Harborfest spans three days and features history tours, pub crawls, scavenger hunts, a whale watch, chocolate making demonstrations, historical weapons program, Boston Public Market events, cruises, tall ship tours, free concerts, street performers, fireworks and a reading of the Declaration of Independence.
The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, which takes two nights to complete features fundraising dinner cruises, an outstanding rehearsal concert with the BSO, famous recording stars, a small fireworks show, confetti and a cannon salute and of course the main July 4th concert with one of the largest fireworks shows in the nation.
The Boston Pops Almost the Fourth Dinner Cruise and Rehearsal Concert is a fundraiser that features a cruise around Boston on the Charles River, dinner, and VIP reserved seating at the Pops Rehearsal Concert. The All-American meal comes complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon, wine, cocktails and more. The hour long cruise provided by the Charles River Boat Company highlights some of the most famous sites in Boston. The tour begins at the dock of the CambridgeSide Galleria mall in Cambridge and ends at the Community Boating Pier in Boston, near the Hatch Shell.
The Pops concerts featured the BSO with conductor Keith Lockhart, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and Little Big Town. Nancy O’Dell of Entertainment Tonight was the host for the this year’s shows.
We want to thank Taryn Lott, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Melissa Hurley, Boston 4 Productions, The Charles River Boat Company, Cambridge Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Star Market, MIT, The Coop @ MIT, and Za Restaurant in Cambridge for making the 4th of July in Boston an experience that we will never forget. We can’t wait to return next year.
Be sure and see our other pages on the fireworks, MIT, and our trip notes, coming in the next few days.
