Usually we just have one mayor, but this week, we have hundreds, here for the US Conference of Mayors, and they'll be celebrating with a fireworks display from the water off the Kennedy Library, starting around 9:30 p.m. So get yourself to a Dorchester or South Boston beach or high point, or just get your dog's thunder blanket ready.

Mystery fireworks over Boston Harbor

Cheyenne was among the many people who watched the fireworks over Boston Harbor tonight - and who wondered what the reason was. Joe Phalen reports they were set off from a barge off 50 Liberty in the Seaport. Spencer Buell reports he called Boston and State Police and the city (don't worry - he's a reporter; knows not to call 911) and that nobody had an answer.

UPDATE: BFD spokesman Steve MacDonald reports the privately financed show was put on by Atlas Pyro of Jaffrey, NH for an events-production company called Fresh Wata in Las Vegas, NV.
