How to watch the Macy's 4th of July fireworks in 2021 online


States in the US will celebrate their own fireworks on July 4, but perhaps the most spectacular annual display is the Annual Macy’s July 4th Firework Spectacular, the country’s largest display, which will be on its 45th edition in 2021.

Unlike last year, people in New York City can watch from viewpoints over the Big Apple. Fireworks fans outside of NYC can also watch the fireworks online and on TV where they are. Here’s how.

The best way to watch the fireworks is on NBC, who will be showing the event live from Macy’s.

The Peacock Network is giving viewers two chances to watch on July 4. It first shows the Fireworks Spectacular at 8pm ET / 7pm CT, before repeating at 10pm ET / 9pm CT.


In addition to a 25-minute fireworks display, this year’s event will also feature a drone light show celebrating Team USA’s upcoming efforts in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. The NBC special also features appearances from the Jonas Brothers, Blake Shelton, Marshmello, Black Pumas, Coldplay, Reba McEntire and OneRepublic. Coverage is hosted by Hamilton and girls5eva star Renée Elise Goldsberry and New Amsterdam‘s Ryan Eggold, and the United States Army Field Band & Soldiers’ Chorus provide the soundtrack as the fireworks go off.

For viewers who want to watch the proceedings online as they take place, NBC is offering a live stream on its website. To access it, viewers simply need to log in with their cable provider’s details or their online live TV provider’s details.

Almost all those live TV providers, such as Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV and pendulum offer a one-week free trial so fireworks fans can watch the special while it airs online for free.

For vaccinated members of the public in New York City who wish to watch in person, there will be elevated viewing platforms to watch the fireworks launch, which will take place on barges on the East River.

These are accessible from Manhattan’s FDR Drive, with entrances at East 23rd, East 34th and East 42nd Streets.

This East River screening is a throwback to the usual run of events from last year, with Macy’s running a series of smaller screenings across NYC’s five boroughs over a week to avoid a super-spreading event.

In a statement, organizers said of the event: “The 45th annual Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks will illuminate the Big Apple skyline with an exciting light show full of bursting colors, cheering music and a sense of positivity.

“This year, we honor America’s everyday heroes from communities across the country and the resilient spirit within all of us. It’s our way of looking ahead with renewed hope for a brighter future.”
