Hosted by "America's Got Talent's" Nick Cannon, the show will air Friday, July 4 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) with an encore presentation at 10 p.m. highlighting the second hour of the special.
The Brooklyn Bridge will serve as a dramatic stage for dazzling pyrotechnics as the 38th annual "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular" returns to the East River. Set to deliver the nation's largest display of patriotic firepower and ready to dazzle more than 3 million spectators and millions on television, the Macy's Fireworks will be launched from barges positioned on the lower East River.
Since 1976 Macy's Fireworks have grown in scale and artistry as they burst to life over many of New York City's waterways and neighborhoods. Incorporating landmarks and milestones is a Macy's Fireworks signature. Macy's last showcased the Brooklyn Bridge in its fireworks spectacle in 1995. This year's creative presentation of the bridge's renowned architecture will reach new heights of imagination during the 25-minute display.
The telecast is a production of Universal Television in association with Macy's. It is produced by Brad Lachman Productions with Lachman serving as executive producer. Bill Bracken is producer.
