Macy's 4th of July Fireworks

New York

The Annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks® show celebrates America’s birthday with patriotic standards and dazzling sparkles that light up the New York skyline in a show unlike any other.  Macy’s works hand-in-hand with the best pyrotechnic team in the business to design and install more than 40,000 effects, all choreographed to an Independence Day medley.

Macy's 4th of July Fireworks® is the largest Independence Day fireworks display in the nation and the single show against which all others are measured. The Fireworks are broadcast live on NBC-TV and has featured celebrity musical performances from world-famous artists such as Beyonce and Katy Perry. Macy's has up to six fireworks barges detonating simultaneously from either one or several locations around New York City. In addition to our 3,000 invited guests seated in the Macy's VIP Grandstands, 15 million viewers tune into NBC's telecast and nearly 3 million spectators view the live show from positions along the river.
