Summer Kickoff With “Illuminate the Harbor” Fireworks

It was a perfect steamy, summer Saturday night to take in the spectacular display of fireworks over Boston Harbor. The annual “Illuminate the Harbor” show was seen across the waterfront neighborhoods from the North End, Downtown, Eastie to the Seaport and Southie.

Large crowds gathered at Christopher Columbus Park in the North End, Piers Park in Eastie and Fan Pier in the Seaport. “Illuminate the Harbor” was presented by Boston Harbor Now, City of Boston, Friends of Christopher Columbus Park, Wharf District Council, Atlas Fireworks and
