If you haven’t seen the Boston Pops perform... what are you waiting for?! Symphony Hall is beautiful, but wow- the Pops take the cake! 2nd balcony seats near the stage are amazing. There’s really not a bad seat in the house though.

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
