Portland’s Eastern Promenade turns red Saturday night, the Fourth of July, as fireworks explode above the thousands of people gathered to celebrate Independence Day at the city’s annual Stars & Stripes Spectacular.

With streets on Munjoy Hill in Portland closed Saturday, July 4, for the annual Stars & Stripes Spectacular on the Eastern Promenade, Kelton Reed, 4, of Gorham chases bubbles as fast as Israel Gutierre of Portland can shoot them from his bubble gun.

Portland Symphony Orchestra Music Director Robert Moody addresses the crowd on the Eastern Promenade during Saturday’s Stars & Stripes Spectacular, which featured performances by the PSO and singer Melissa Manchester.
