Fireworks In Boston Harbor

Drinks at The Landing (right in front of the Codzilla Boat Ride Landing, Long Wharf) 6 to 8pm, and also The Chart House Bar nearby. At 8 PM, we will walk over to Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park next door to the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, then the fireworks begin at 9pm. Bring a low to the ground beach chair.

Originally, I had said picnic...but there will be no place to spread out. For FOOD, There is a Bar Menu available at The Chart House.
There's a Starbucks inside the Marriott. Food from street vendors will also be available during the earlier, Boston Arts Festival noon to 6pm.

No alcoholic beverages in the park or high seats lawn chairs permitted. Blankets and photographers needed. PLEASE MAINTAIN YOU OWN TAB WITH THE TABLE. This included Tax and TIP! You would think everyone would know not to stiff your table mates but appearently this must be spelled out. Your hosts are not responsible for covering any shortages on table bills. Individual tabs are only available at the bar, not allowed for table service.

PARKING: Aquarium Parking is available if you come early.

SUBWAY: AQUARIUM stop on the BLUE LINE

    Lauren & Peter did a FANTASTIC job! The Chart House outside seating was lovely and the FREE Valet Parking even better! A short walk to the end of the pier for awesome fireworks---BETTER than 4th of July because there were NO crowds! PLEASE do this event next year the EXACT same way! Lauren the glow-in-the-dark bracelets were so much fun!! Many thanks for a GREAT nite!

    For those of you who have already made a table reservation at The Chart House....be sure to specify you want the back patio and ask for your table to be near Laurfen's Table

    For those at the Chart House, will you have a meetup sign? Lauren, you mentioned making dinner reservations on the patio to get free valet parking? Is anyone making dinner reservations or are we all doing bar snacks?

    BTW the Boston Arts (Ahts) festival is going on from 12-8pm today. At the Christopher Columbus Park. Check out this webpage for more details. If the weather is good, I will be hanging out there.

    1 · August 31, 2013

  • Melissa F.

    Where exactly do we meet and is a reservation needed?

    August 31, 2013

    • Lauren

      Hi Melissa, The pre fireworks party will be held at two bars which are across the street from eachothe on long wharf. The Landing is for those interestex in drinks only. The Chart House has a bar menu for those who stay in the bar area but stand up room only. For those wanting dinner and frree valet parking, you must have a dinner reservation on the back patio and arrive no later than 15 min. Before your reservation time. Your last option would be to arrive at the park and stay there. We will all end up there between 8 and 8:30pm

      August 31, 2013

    • Melissa F.

      Thanks Lauren hope to see you there)

      August 31, 2013

    Hi Guys, This is a plee for THREE more people to step off as COHOSTS in order to pull this off! Please post on this wll if you'd like to help greet people at one of three locations.

    August 19, 2013

    • Sandra

      Yup I can.

      August 20, 2013

    • Lauren

      Great Samdy,Thanks. See you tomorrow evening so long as the weather holds up.

      August 30, 2013

  • Lauren

    FREE VALET PARKING. I recommend that you follow my Lead by making a dinner reservation at The Chart House for 6PM. Make the reservation for yourself and guests...it would help if you added a few other seats to your table out on the BACK PATIO for fireworks viewing. Reservations at The Chart House call 617~[masked] or go online. Arrive by 5:45 for Valet Parking before the lot fills and they cannot accommodate anymore dinner guests.

    August 29, 2013

    • Amal

      Sorry, I think I may have spoken too soon: I'm a little confused, would we be staying at the Chart House from 6-9pm (until the fireworks are done) or are we leaving at 8pm and walking over to see the fireworks? I'm not too familiar with the are and where everything is located.

      August 30, 2013

    • Amal

      Mark, I decided not to join the dinner, after all. Thank you for offering a seat. Enjoy the evening.

      August 30, 2013

  • Nancy

    Lauren,
    Where/who should we meet at the Chart House at 8 PM to walk over to the Park?

    August 30, 2013

  • John S

    Lauren, you say you've purchased your ticket and want us to indicate same when we sign up. Um, what ticket? I see nothing in the description here.

    August 29, 2013

    • Sandra

      It's on her profile by accident. There are no tickets for this.

      1 · August 29, 2013

    • Lauren

      John No Tickets for this BUT I strongly encourage everyone to make a dinner reservation at The Chart House Back Patio[masked]

      August 29, 2013

  • Lauren

    Hi Everyone I'm looking for one more, perhaps two more cohost for this evening siince we will be spread out between The Landing Bar, The Chart House Bar and the Park

    August 10, 2013

    • Peter

      I think I can take the Chart House.

      August 14, 2013

    • Lauren

      Hey Pete Thanks, I will be asking hosts to take turns as we will need the park covered for greeting people who may want to stay there..We will rotate so no one is stuck in the park and can go get something to eat & drink

    Duncan, we will look for your blue hair wig from 6pm until dark...and then glow stick neclaces, bracelets, hoolahoops, etc.

    August 8, 2013

    • duncan

      The wig you are talking about isn't just blue it's dazzlingly shiny. Or, are you talking about the other blue wig-- looks rather unkempt.

      August 9, 2013

  • duncan

    Will it be dark enough to see the glow stix at 6 PM?.. Just checking.
