Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Can I see the Pops Concert from your location.
  • A: We will have 3 Jumbotrons to view the Concert. You are able to see the cannons from our dock. If you want to catch the concert in person we recommend you go to the Free Pops Concert on the 3rd. Check out the official July 4th website for more info. 
  • Q: Can I go to the Pops Concert and then come back to the docks to see the fireworks.
  • A: No. When the concert begins the entire Esplanade is packed very tightly and movement is restricted. You'd be unable to get back to the Boat House in time for the fireworks. We broadcast the entire show over loud speakers and jumbotrons.
  • Q: Do I need to bring a chair or blanket?
  • A: No, we provide seating. However, those sitting in open seating may bring folding lawn type chairs if they wish.

  • A: Community Boating is a 501c(3). The amount of the contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of the ticket price over the value of goods and services received. Our good faith estimate of the value of goods and services received is $10 for open seating and $50 for reserved seating. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
