Ladies and gentlemen, we're pleased to announce that, the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks are back!

Here are the details: On Monday, July 4, beginning at 9:25pm, over 65,000 shells will be launched off five different barges on the East River. The extravaganza will last 25 minutes and feature, according to Macy's itself, "dozens of colors and shapes, creating dramatic effects a mile across the river and from 1,000 feet in the air to the water's edge."
