Look! Opus fireworks! The perfect way to celebrate the birth of our amazing country. As the tshirt states (and DAMN do I wish I had one right now), Massachusetts invented America. What better place to celebrate this fabulous holiday than our fair city of Boston? Let's dive right in, then, with some long and patriotic weekend FREE things to do #OnTheTown!


Of course, I had to. Not only is the fabulous Susan Tedeschi taking the stage, more than a few Opus familiar faces will be there repping with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus! Fireworks, fabulous music, it's all there—just remember to stay hydrated and leave glass bottles at home! 'MURRICA!

Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular: At the DCR Hatch Shell on the Esplanade; july4th.org. July 4 only. @bostonjuly4th


Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's annual visit to the Boston Common has finally come round again. Two Gents is full of everything you love about Billy Shakes: cross dressing, infidelity, dopey servant characters, and foolish people falling in love. With a setting evocative of '50s Rat Pack-era Vegas and a scene stealing puppy, there's something for absolutely everyone in this production!

Two Gentlemen of Verona: Produced by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company; By William Shakespeare; Directed by Steven Maler. On the Boston Common; commshakes.org. Through July 26. @commshakes
