Storrow Drive and Gloucester Street
Boston, Massachusetts

No one does fireworks quite like Boston; this year's will be the largest and most complex Boston Fourth of July pyrotechnic display to date. More than 20 thousand pounds of explosives will be used for the display, which will include the largest shells yet to be used - ten-inch diameter shells that will climb to 1500 feet - nearly one and a half times the height of the Hancock Tower. A great location to view the fireworks is from the docks at Community Boating.

Our event for 2008 will again be held on the Esplanade in Boston, along the Charles River, which includes the Edward A. Hatch Memorial Shell and Oval.
