[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is an enormous event that takes two nights to complete. There is a rehearsal concert on the third with performers, patriotic singalongs, a cannon salute, and a grand finale with confetti and fireworks. The main event on the Fourth of July features the concert and one of the largest fireworks displays in the country.

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 concerts on both nights featured the Boston Pops 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.
