When you think of the Fourth of July, what comes to mind? Hot dogs, baseball, and beaches are often associated with Independence Day. However, the biggest aspect of any Fourth of July celebration is fireworks, and none are better than the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks celebration.

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks takes place on the East River in New York City. More than 60,000 shells and 30 colors will light up the sky in one of the most spectacular visual displays you’ll see all year. Before the show, artists Lainey Wilson, Luis Fonsi, Tanner Adell, Bell Biv DeVoe, Shaboozey, and The War and Treaty will perform.
