Boston Ups July 4th Security, Revelers Resolute

Facebook

Many people say they won’t skip Boston’s public July Fourth party just because authorities have said that the Boston Marathon suspects first considered attacking that day.

Authorities are ramping up security, but some holiday revelers along the Charles River say they won’t be giving in to fear of terrorism by staying away from celebrations.

The holiday event will mark the city’s first major public gathering since the April 15 attack.

Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart also says Thursday’s concert and fireworks show will be a perfect time for people to come together as Bostonians following the bombings.

Gov. Deval Patrick says he’s looking forward to attending the holiday event and believes it will be a great day.
