Fun! Food! Fireworks! These are the hallmarks of a great July 4th celebration, and are all available to enjoy at these five special events and destinations.

Head to the July 4th Firework Show & Celebration at Riverpark (450 E. 29th Street), which will feature live music, chef German Villatoro’s specialty BBQ menu, a NY burger station, and a special ice cream truck, as well as signature cocktails. And, of course, there’s a prime view of the Macy’s fireworks. In case of inclement weather, Riverpark also features a spacious indoor space with floor to ceiling windows for optimal viewing.
