On Sunday, Cities and Communities throughout San Diego County, Tempe Town Lake, Boston and NYC celebrated Independence Day 2010 with fireworks, festivals, entertainment and fun. Independence Day is commonly linked with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, and traditions of the United States.

The celebration of United States of America’s Independence Day lightens the skies in a burst of red, white and blue over the Hudson River straddling New York and New Jersey on Sunday, a scene that was being repeated in hundreds of communities in a scorching end to a scorching day for much of the U.S. “It’s amazing on TV,” said Marcos Jimenez, a golf caddy who joined thousands of others lining the riverfront for a prime view of the show. “I figured seeing it live would be even better.”

Boston Fireworks Spectacular:

The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is known as the premier Independence Day celebration in the nation. The 37th year of the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular was celebrated on 4th of July. The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular started as a simple idea. Many people were assembled on the banks of the Charles River in Boston. A traditional concert by the Boston Pops orchestra that’s underway, highlighted by a usually stirring rendition of the “1812 Overture” was included in this 4th of July concert. At this year’s concert, Country music star Toby Keith was a guest performer. For the next Fourth of July, howitzer cannons, fireworks and church bells were all added to the concert.

Port of San Diego:

On Sunday, July 4, 2010 San Diego Bay celebrated its 10th Annual Port of San Diego Big Bay Boom which filled the sky with a spectacular pyrotechnic light show. Four barges were placed strategically in San Diego Bay off the shorelines of Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and the North Embarcadero area and between Seaport Village and the Coronado Ferry Landing. The fireworks were visible from all of the Port’s parks in the region of the northern and central San Diego Bay area. These include Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Spanish Landing, Embarcadero Marina Parks North and South, Cesar Chavez Park, Coronado Tidelands Park and the Imperial Beach Pier.

New York City:

According to the Macy’s press release, the 2010 July 4 show was featured over 40,000 pyrotechnic shells fired from six barges in the Hudson River in a 26-minute synchronized display which was designed by SOUSA Fireworks. The music was provided by the New York Pops orchestra, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as well as a Capella, gospel, choral groups and barbershop quartets. Macy’s Fireworks debuted in 1958 on the Hudson and became an annual event years later. It was usually located on the East River, but was on the Hudson as recently as 2000. The fireworks were moved to the Hudson in 2009 as part of the festivities honoring the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s first arrival to the river that now bears his name.
