As the city where America’s independence began, Boston goes all out for this patriotic holiday. Each summer, the display of fireworks draws a crowd of roughly half a million people. One of the highlights of the festivities every year is the free concert put on by the Boston Pops that takes places on the Esplanade overlooking the Charles River. The concert takes place on July 3 and 4, with the fireworks starting at approximately 10:30 pm on the 4th.
