When I was in high school I spent a few summers with my sister Keri in Boston, MA. One of those summers we decided to brave the crowds and go to the Esplenade to hear the Boston Pops and to watch the fireworks. We left Keri's house around 10 or 11 am for the drive into the city and to score a spot where we could actually see the stage. We spread our blankets and basket of food out in a nice spot under a little shade tree and began the 8 hour wait. Being the east coast we spent part of the time with the blanket folded up and huddling under an umbrella. It seemed like as soon as we had spread the blanket out again, the clouds would move back in and we would have to fold everything back up again.
It was a novel experience for me being from St George and all so I actually enjoyed the rain and the concert was amazing! If I remember correctly Bebe Neworth performed along with the Pops as did the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Although, the hit of the concert was when Bebe Neworth came out with a yellow umbrella and sang Singing in the Rain. Man! She has a voice!!
