Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, the nation’s largest Independence Day display, returns to the East River for another spectacular celebration.

The 39th annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks® will rumble to life over New York City, igniting the skyline over the East River with the nation’s largest Independence Day pyrotechnic display. This year, extending to two locations, the show will begin at approximately 9:20 p.m. and dazzle the shorelines of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn with an unparalleled spectacle of color, light and sound set to commemorate the holiday with a very big bang!

“Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks are the nation’s premiere Independence Day celebration and we are thrilled to once again bring the City of New York a front row view to this one-of-a-kind nationwide spectacle,” said Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. “With two locations, firing 1,600 shells per minute, this year’s show will cover a large stretch of the City’s famed skyline with incredibly vibrant color and fantastic effects.”

America’s most spectacular party will take place from two locations on the East River in midtown and within the South Street Seaport district. Brave, the theme of this year’s show, will fire more than 40,000 pyrotechnic shells during a 25-minute synchronized display. Designed in collaboration with PyroSpectaculars by Souza, the show will be fired from four barges positioned between 23rd and 37th Streets in midtown and from one double-barge positioned below the Brooklyn Bridge.

Revelers enjoying the show are encouraged to experience the full explosive display by tuning in to radio station 1010 WINS-AM to hear the musical score to which the show is choreographed.

Independence Day spectators from coast-to-coast can catch all the action in the sky by tuning to NBC’s two-hour national broadcast of “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” beginning at 8 p.m. ET (check local listings). In addition to the pyrotechnic splendor, the 4th of July’s most popular entertainment special will feature performances from the nation’s hottest musical acts.

East River

Song idea
That would be a perfect thing. Young in America is likely to be one of the songs of the summer, and couldn't fit better for a July 4 celebration.

Hey, Danielle Bradbery's new single "Young In America" would be perfect for your Independence Day celebration. She is scheduled to be in NY on the 5th so let's make this happen.
