NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Thursday night will feature Macy’s 37th annual New York City 4th of July fireworks spectacular.
The skies above the Hudson River will be the canvas for this year’s show.
“Forty-thousand shells are gonna burst into the sky,” executive producer Amy Kule told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
Kule said the show will feature some new effects.
“We’ve got blinking eyes in our smiley faces, and everybody’s seen the smiley faces in the past, but nobody’s actually seen them blink. Well this year they’re gonna be a little flirty,” she said.
