Here a great pair of legs pauses for traffic in front of the television crews preparing for tomorrow's big fireworks display over the Charles River. This is the 35th year of the 4th of July show, with concerts by the Boston Pops and this year's guest Rascal Flats.
While the concerts are nice, my personal favorite part is the fireworks. The website says that
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. This year's fireworks have an international flair as well - devices are being imported from Portugal, Spain, China, Japan, and Italy.
Oh boy, oh boy! Big explosions - I can't wait!
