The 41st Annual Macy’s NYC July 4th Fireworks Show
This year’s fireworks show is looking to be one of the biggest yet. The Macy’s Fireworks Show is already the largest show in the nation so of course, it only makes sense to make the show even bigger! The show first got its start in the city in 1958 and slowly became a yearly tradition in NYC. This NYC July 4th fireworks show draws an estimated 3 million spectators a year while the show is also broadcasted on NBC to view on television.
The 41st edition of this NYC July 4th fireworks show will feature a 25-minute display with never before seen shells and effects! Your favorite classic fireworks that you’re accustomed to seeing will still be on display with multiple new shells being implemented. The new fireworks that will be on display this year include color changing chrysanthemums, purple crackling ghost peonies, orange bees, and pulsing happy faces in 23 bright and popping colors including fuchsia, lemon, and aqua. This year’s fireworks show will be choreographed to performances by the West Point Band and Glee Club. There will be new arrangements of your favorite Independence Day songs such as “Yankee Doodle,” “You’re A Grand Old Flag,” and “America the Beautiful” to help you show off your patriotism.
We’re less than a month away from the show’s big debut so make sure to lock in your NYC July 4th plans and book your tickets to one of our events this year! Celebrate with us this year and enjoy an unforgettable July 4th celebration with an amazing view of the NYC July 4th fireworks!
