Fourth of July Fireworks

New York City, NY

For more than 35 years, Macy’s has lit up the New York City skyline with their iconic 4th of July firework extravaganza. Every year, more than 40,000 pyrotechnics are set off on barges, launching the fireworks more than 1,000 feet in the air. Synchronized to a 25-minute handpicked score, the show has been dazzling the nation since its debut in 1958.
