Baby You're a Firework

On Tuesday, July 2, head to the Seaport District to see fireworks along the water. Enjoy the Parade of Lights, an elegant promenade of festively-lit boats of all shapes and sizes on Boston Harbor at 8:45 p.m. followed by Harborfest fireworks launching at approximately 9:30 p.m. Spots to watch – the Barking CrabEnvoy’s Outlook rooftop or Cisco Brewers Pop Up.
