NEW YORK CITY FIREWORKS

The 46th Annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks will again light up the East River. On Monday, July 4th at approximately 9:25 p.m., Macy's will begin its signature pyrotechnic salute to America. The show will feature a barrage of dazzling shells and effects.

This year's revelry will launch more than 48,000 shells and effects from five barges positioned between E. 23rd and E. 42nd Streets on the East River with prime viewing from three boroughs in New York City.

The 25-minute spectacle is synchronized to a rousing musical score and will feature a host of shells and effects in 30 colors and shapes. The Macy's 4th of July Fireworks have been a New York City tradition since 1976.

Public viewing locations will be set up and managed by the NYPD. Spectators are encouraged to check macys.com/fireworks for the most up-to-date viewing information including entry details and marine viewing.
