Waiting for the show . . .

Since early in the morning, a tidal wave of humanity flowed onto the banks of the Charles River in anticipation of tonight's Fourth of July Festivities. I took these pictures just before 7 p.m. tonight as the crowd waited patiently—entertaining themselves with food, games, cards, and more food. As I write this, the sun is setting and the fireworks should burst into the sky above all of these patient folk at last.

Not only were the banks of the river blanketed with thousands, Storrow Drive was blocked off which created a whole other tier of viewing the fireworks.
