The Fireworks

There is nothing like fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July! In keeping with the rich American tradition and heritage, the 2015 Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will be overflowing with patriotism and pride. The Family-owned and operated Fireworks by Grucci, known as "America's First Family of Fireworks," are honored to produce this year’s performance. The Grucci's, now in their 6th generation, have transformed the night skies to the delight of millions across the globe since 1850.  In possession of two Guinness World Records, most notably the record for the world's largest fireworks display, Fireworks by Grucci will produce over 100 displays nationwide to celebrate America's 239th birthday.

Phil Grucci, President/Creative Director and Designer of this year’s performance states “It is our great honor to return to Boston to collaborate with Mr. Mugar and his team to once again display from one of the nation’s Independence Day icons, the Esplanade, Hatch Shell  and Charles River of Boston. My father James, 4th generation of our family heritage, first performed in Boston on the 4th of July in 1976 for our Nation’s Bicentennial Celebration.  Many of our family members are performing throughout this great country to help all Americans celebrate our independence. I am honored to personally be in Boston with our family and a team of our finest Pyrotechnicians including my daughter Lauren, 6th generation of our family business, to present one of our finest performances."

Gucci says, "The design of our display includes a great emphasis on the vast horizontal and vertical space above the barges in the Charles River and along the entire length of the Mass Ave Bridge. We have balanced the show to fill the frame with unique effects exclusive only to a Grucci performance."
