Oh, say can you see those super-Boston-imposed fireworks at this year’s Boston Pops Independence Day spectacular? What we natives so proudly hail as the greatest city around, the twilight of works will be gleaming with NO Boston theme.
Last year, the Pops production popped up images like Fenway Park and the State House as works boomed within. The reproduction was a little off and forced on viewers. Taking away from the beauty of the flames.
“The public spoke … people didn’t care for it,” said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for Boston 4 Productions. “We always try new and different things. We always look at the event and what would enhance the broadcast.”
Turning 39 this year, the Boston Pops will sparkle our Fourth of July on the banks of the Charles River. “From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, white with foam…”
Millions tune into the CBS broadcast for the nation’s premiere Independence Show. Happy Birthday America!
The Hatch Shell opens at 9am, usually fills up by 2pm and the works bang the city by 8pm. FREELY.
Alcohol, glass containers and tarps larger than 8’ x 10’ will be confiscated if you plan on hatching it up at the Oval. If you don’t get a wristband to hang in the Shell all day. Don’t worry you can catch the rockets beaming the Boston skyline all over the Back Bay.
It’s an all-day summer affair. Recorded live music will keep the grounds entertained early. As the Pops get ready to ship it with Fleet Week, The Drop Kick Murphy’s, Hollywood Jennifer Hudson, Mama Mia cast, Actor Michael Chiklis, and Keith Lockhart who will all be center stage for the halftime show.
Not only are the Drop Kick’s Boston bright, Chiklis is a hometown native who will shoot our homes this Fall as gangster Vincent Savino in the upcoming CBS drama series “Vegas”.
We’ll be going Way Way Back, to Marshvegas for the Fourth but it doesn’t matter if we’re on the banks of the Charles River, a Castle Island feet or bobbing on a boat off Plymouth harbor.
We are free because of the BRAVE! Take a moment during your holiday red, white and blue to remember the sacrifices made by brave American service members that continue to defend our country and protect our freedom!
