The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is undoubtedly the biggest fireworks display in Massachusetts, with hundreds of thousands expected to flock to the city on July 4 to witness the celebration, and many more ready to watch at home, either on TV via Bloomberg TV or WHDH, or streaming on Boston.comBostonGlobe.com, or BostonPopsJuly4th.org.

But the Fireworks Spectacular is hardly the only Bay State pyrotechnics show around — countless towns in Massachusetts will hold their own lights-in-the-sky extravaganzas. And with the Fourth of July holiday falling on a Wednesday this year, you could watch fireworks for 10 straight nights starting on Thursday. Here are the times and schedules of every fireworks show in Massachusetts we could find from now through July 7.
