The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular Returns To Celebrate The Fourth Of July On The Charles River Esplanade

The Boston Pops and Conductor Keith Lockhart have announced the 2022 return of the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular to the Charles River Esplanade after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will take place under the direction of Keith Lockhart from the stage of the Hatch Memorial Shell on the Charles River Esplanade Shed, Monday, July 4, 8-11 p.m., broadcast live on Bloomberg TV and Radio, as well as locally on WHDH-TV Channel 7.

The 2022 Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular continues the Boston Pops' historic tradition of sharing the gift of a free musical celebration with its hometown. Keith Lockhart, who will direct his 27th Fourth-of-July program as Boston Pops Conductor, will lead a program featuring the Boston Pops orchestra, along with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and the Middlesex County Volunteers Fifes & Drums.

Program details and special guest performers will be announced in the coming weeks. The 2022 Fireworks Spectacular will include a special moment in memory of David Mugar, whose support of Boston's Independence Day celebration starting in 1974 transformed the event into one of the most recognized Independence Day celebrations in the country.

This year, the July 3rd rehearsal will be closed to the public to focus on the return of the Fourth of July holiday celebration.
