For the first time in over a decade, the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks will be moving to the west side of Manhattan, launching from barges along the Hudson River. For the past 9 years, the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks launched out of the East River.

Lainey Wilson, Luis Fonsi, Tanner Adell and The War And Treaty will take the stage ahead of the fireworks display.

“Year after year, this telecast never fails to inspire and awe, lighting up the New York skyline with a fireworks display that’s unmatched,” said Jen Neal, Executive Vice President of Live Events and Specials, NBCU Entertainment. “It’s this type of live programming event that brings us together as a nation, highlighting the distinctiveness of both our NBC and Peacock brands.”

The 2024 edition will feature a never-before-seen firework — a silver cascading burst with a center kaleidoscope and alternating red and blue. Additional effects include cross rings, strobing comets, waterfalls, Saturn circles, crackling pistils and special ghost pyro that alternates colors featuring multiple hues, NBC says.

The broadcast also will highlight individuals across the nation who are championing sustainability, accessibility, visibility for underrepresented groups, artistic expression and more, according to NBC.

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks telecast is in association with Macy’s. It’s produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment with Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay as executive producers.
