Countdown To The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks: The Who, The What, The Where

The Fourth of July means the wonderful display of the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks extravaganza. Did you know the first Macy’s Fireworks display took place in 1958, making this year the show’s 42nd anniversary? Akbar Gbajabiamila and Matt Iseman will host the show this year as the musical guests include Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and more. The two-hour program begins at 8 p.m. and will start with performances leading up to the main event, the fireworks display. The show will take place along the East River between East 23rd and East 40th Street. The fireworks are launched from seven barges in the river.

The barges will be set in the east river from East 23rd to East 40th streets According to Macy’s the official viewing points are:

There will be 3,000 shells and effects used during the 25-minute Macy’s Fireworks display. There will be 20 new shells and special effects this year including a neon-colored pinwheel and pulsing hearts, swirling water fountains and others that will dazzle viewers.  It takes more than 8,000 hours to plan, load and execute and there will be 50 pyrotechnicians on hand to make sure everything runs smooth. Did you know fireworks  can reach about 1,000 feet in the sky, which is approximately three times higher than The Statue of Liberty.
