Macy’s 46th 4th of July Fireworks to light up Manhattan’s East River

The East River will once again be illuminated by the 46th Annual Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks. Macy’s will commence its annual pyrotechnic salute to the United States of America on July 4th at approximately 9:25 p.m. There will be a slew of eye-catching shells and effects used in the presentation.

From five barges positioned between E. 23rd and E. 42nd Streets on the East River, spectators will be able to watch more than 48,000 shells and effects being launched.

“Macy’s Fireworks will once again spark joy and captivate millions as together the nation joins in celebration,” said Will Coss, executive producer of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. “Live from New York City, five barges positioned on the East River will launch a kaleidoscope of colors, shapes, and sounds, celebrating America’s diverse musical legacy, featuring a selection of genres that have inspired global culture.”

There are 30 different shells and effects in 30 different colors and forms in the 25-minute show.

Shaped effects that are sure to wow include tall hats, mushrooms, and small snake shells, as well as tricolor intertwined rings and blinking smiles. More than 1,900 shells and effects will be launched per minute with this year’s design. One-third of this year’s fireworks display will have multiple effects, bringing more pyrotechnic firepower to the festivities that will span a mile over the East River in a multi-layered performance, reaching dramatic heights of 1,000 feet to the water’s edge.

The musical score for this year’s film will feature a wide range of American musical styles.

This year’s 2 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade soundtrack was handpicked by Dancing with the Stars and NBC’s 2 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade musical director Ray Chew, who has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B, Rock, and Country are just a few of the genres represented by the songs that will accompany the sky-high fireworks.

Highlights include “The Star-Spangled Banner” performed by The United States Army Soldiers’ Chorus, “Born in the USA,” “Lift Every Voice and Sing” featuring Kenny Lattimore and the Community Baptist Church Choir, and “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” performed by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City, among other fan favorites.

It’s impossible to have a Macy’s Fireworks performance without the Macy’s Golden Mile and a breathtaking tribute in light. Thousands of golden-hued shells will form a stunning cascade across the East River, set to a medley of “My Country Tis of Thee” and “America the Beautiful.”

Since 1976, the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks have been a New York City tradition.

On the Fourth of July, you may watch Macy’s Fireworks from the comfort of your own home or from any location in Midtown Manhattan with a clear view of the sky over the East River. The NYPD will be in charge of setting up and managing public viewing places.

Parts of the Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan waterfronts will have designated public viewing areas that will be disclosed in the near future. For more such 4th of July, updates do follow us only on
