BOSTON (AP) — Fireworks thundered and flashed over the Charles River as the Boston Pops July 4 celebration ended — just ahead of a drenching rain.

Officials had moved the annual concert and fireworks from Friday to Thursday because of potential bad weather. Then they cut the concert short so that spectators could see the colorful fireworks, a crowd favorite.

Before the storm started, Beach Boys founder Mike Love, Broadway star Megan Hilty and the Boston Children's Chorus offered lively performances and thousands of revelers sang along to patriotic songs.
