Boston (WHDH)-National Guard soldiers installed howitzer cannons on Sunday in preparation for the 1812 Overture, the Grand Finale of the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular.
A team of soldiers has deployed three cannons along the Charles River, which has been supported by security guards since the 1970s. Two soldiers place a person on each cannon, all working with the orchestra to time the shot.
“It’s really cool to continue pedigree and heritage here in Boston and Massachusetts and attend Independence Day at Esplanade,” said Lieutenant Nicholas Harry. “We love supporting the community. We’re always doing this, but July 4th, Independence Day is probably the highlight of the season.”
