Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks 2008 – East River

New York City’s 4th of July Fireworks is one of Macy’s great gifts to the people of NYC. Each year Macy’s kicks off the world’s largest fireworks display at approximately 9pm on July 4th. Four barges stationed between 23rd and 42nd Streets in the East River set off 20,000 aerial shells and special effects. There are electric set pieces on the barges, and the New York Fire Department gets in on the act with fire boats shooting red, clear, and blue water 300 feet over the river.
