BOSTON (WHDH) - Fireworks by Grucci is preparing for one of its biggest displays of the year — the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular in Boston.
Phil Grucci loaded a rusty old barge with some serious sparkle power Monday that will be used to light up the Fourth of July sky.
7News got a tour of the barge where about 10,000 devices are ready to go.
“This is where I choose to be on the Fourth of July,” Grucci beamed.
The fireworks can be seen from about 10 miles away, thanks to the thousands of hours put into designing, engineering and loading the display.
Computer systems trigger each piece with pinpoint accuracy, as the choreographed show loudly dances along to the music.
“So when the patriotic music is happening, there’s red, white and blue in the sky with big, bold, robust fireworks,” Grucci explained.
The event will bring hundreds of thousands of people together as they celebrate Independence Day.
“If you were to paint that picture of the perfect Fourth of July environment, it’s right here in Boston on the Charles River,” Grucci said.
He added that this fireworks display is considered a world-class event.
