About the 35th Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks® Spectacular:
The 35th Annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks will fire more than 40,000 pyrotechnic shells during a 25-minute synchronized display. Designed in collaboration with SOUSA Fireworks, the show will be set off from six barges positioned on the Hudson River, stretching from 20th to 55th Streets. This wide spectrum covering two miles of sky, allows Macy's Fireworks to produce dazzling effects that reach heights of 1,000 feet, providing magnificent views to more spectators from water's edge to towering skyscrapers. Packing a major punch, Macy's Fireworks this year will feature 50 different shape effects, 17 colors, and shells ranging in size from 1-inch to 10-inches in diameter, some weighing up to 35 pounds. With an average of 1,600 shells launched per minute, the massive display is sure to draw thunderous cheers from the gathered crowds.
The Spectacular will be broadcast live on NBC on Monday, July 4 at 9 p.m. nationwide and the fireworks soundtrack can be heard locally on 1010 WINS radio. (Source: Macy’s)
