Epic fireworks

Macy’s epic fireworks display on the East River July 4, 2018. It doesn’t get any better than this anywhere else in the USA!

More than 200 years ago, the very first 4th of July fireworks lit up the Philadelphia night sky. Our nation celebrated its first year of independence from England on July 4, 1777. Year after year, communities all over the United States continue this celebration of independence with epic fireworks shows. And it never grows old.

Macy’s fireworks show is an extraordinary American tradition that has wowed 3,000,000 people each year for the past 40 years. It’s the nation’s largest fireworks display and packed with star performances! There are no fireworks shows that surpass it! It’s massive, in a class all its own!

This year’s 25-minute-extravaganza will shoot 3,000 shells and effects per minute in 25 different hues. And Macy’s has added 20 new shells and effects this year!

Not a native New Yorker? We invite you to come to watch the 40th Annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks live. Come and celebrate Independence Day in New York fashion. If you’re not able to celebrate the 4th of July in person, tune into NBC’s 2-hour national broadcast at 8pm.

Past fireworks shows have included performances by popular artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida, Meghan Trainor, Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. This year Kelly Clarkson returns to sing a soulful tribute to the Irving Berlin classic, “God Bless America.” And she’ll be backed by the West Point Band and Glee Club. Other performers hitting the stage include Ricky Martin and Blake Shelton.
