Boston Pops July 4th Spectacular is back after skipping a year due to COVID-19, but not on The Esplanade & Hatch Shell, yet on Boston Common…
The Boston Pops is partnering with the City of Boston on a live fireworks display from the Boston Common, bringing the closing portion of the July 4th event back across the state to the city that has proudly presented this iconic, large-scale event since 1974. The Boston Common fireworks display will be carried by Bloomberg and locally in Boston on WHDH-TV Channel 7.
“After careful consideration of recent issuances from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts easing restrictions on masking, physical distancing, and capacity allowances, the Boston Pops determined that in order to best ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, it was prudent to postpone its return to the Esplanade until 2022, when there would be adequate time to plan and execute the complex event, which usually entails a ten-month planning process involving multiple government agencies and many event and concert planning organizations.”
