If your travels take you to Boston, The July 4th fireworks show takes place between 7 and 11 pm at The Hatch memorial Shell located at 47 David Mugar Way. Arrive early as spots are claimed instantaneously during this presentation, but for many, it's worth the wait in more ways than one.
Locally, James Taylor will take center stage at Tanglewood this weekend as traffic delays will definitely impact your commute to "lovely" Lenox. Arrive early to avoid any major inconveniences.
Whatever the case, Happy Birthday America and to all: Have a safe and joyous holiday.
