Macy's 4th of July Fireworks is happening on four nights to celebrate the Fourth of July, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The shows, which will be five minutes each, will take place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, June 29 - July 1, across the five boroughs. The time and location of each show won't be released until the night of so as to avoid making crowds in any one place, the mayor announced. "It will be brief bursts, brief but mighty," he said about the shows. "This is not like what you're seeing with the illegal fireworks, you'll know this is a very professional, beautiful show."
Macy's says thousands of shells will be fired into the sky, up to 1,000 feet, per minute at each borough's selected locations.
The finale will take place on the Fourth of July, from 8 to 10pm, from the Empire State Building. You can tune into NBC to watch the show that will include tape from the previous nights.
