The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular

“The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, America’s best Independence Day celebration, takes place on the Esplanade next to the Charles River. The music is terrific, and then comes the finale – Tchaikovsky’s explosive 1812 Overture, ending with dramatic drum rolls and real cannon fire, while church bells ring throughout the city.”

WGBH Craft Beer Festival

“It’s time to tap into that inner beer snob. It’s not a bad thing being one. It just means you know what you like—the good stuff. And there’s plenty of the good stuff at the WGBH Craft Beer Festival. The 21-and-over event features some of the finest craft beers New England has to offer. And in typical craft brew fashion, there will be food trucks and live music.”
