4th Of July Boston Pops Esplanade
We are now cautiously optimistic that most of the festivities should go off without a hitch (or a storm).

Tropical Storm Arthur is forming off the coast of Florida and, as luck would have it, will likely be making its closest pass by southern New England on Friday night, perhaps as a hurricane.
The Boston Pops will hold its 39th Fireworks Spectacular this July 4 on the Esplanade with a practice run on July 3 that is also open to the public. Here is the schedule of events.
