Macy’s famous Fourth of July fireworks are set to air live from New York City tonight, and as part of the celebration, the chain department store has enlisted some famous entertainers to take the stage as part of the big event!
This year’s show will see 65,000 shells and effects from five totally separate barges positioned along New York City’s East River between Midtown and Brooklyn.
“The Summer of New York City is underway!” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “New Yorkers have worked hard to fight back COVID-19 and build a recovery for all of us. This summer, we can’t wait to reconnect with the iconic events that make our city great. These fireworks make us all proud to be New Yorkers and Americans, and I’m looking forward to a joyful and safe viewing this year.”
The fireworks will kick off at 8pm ET on NBC with an encore performance airing two hours later.
