The Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks show is back with a bang. The 46th annual star-spangled salute from New York City promises to “ignite the night” with more than 48,000 exploding shells and pyrotechnic effects illuminating the sky over the East River for 25 minutes on Monday night.
“It’s going to be super dynamic,” Will Coss, the executive producer of Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks, told MarketWatch. “It’s a really robust show, a really big show, filled with new colors and new effects.” Viewers who don’t live in the Big Apple can tune into NBC’s national broadcast from 8 to 10 p.m. ET/PT, or 7 to 9 p.m. CT/MT on Monday, and NBC will also have an hour-long encore presentation from 10-11 p.m. ET. Check your local listings. You can also stream the fireworks on Comcast’s
