We’re just a day away from the Fourth of July and the annual Macy’s fireworks show, which will bring its massive pyrotechnic display to the East River for the fifth consecutive year. This year’s event is expected to be one of its biggest yet, with 20 new effects, tens of thousands of fireworks, and millions of people watching it all go down.
But if you don’t want to watch the fireworks in person—and considering that it’s going to be another scorcher tomorrow, we wouldn’t blame you for not wanting to deal with subway changes and cram into the viewing areas in Midtown and Long Island City—you can still catch them on TV.
NBC will broadcast the July Fourth fireworks, as per usual, and the televised program will kick off at 8 p.m. The fireworks themselves don’t actually start until about 9:25
