Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1967, New York City has celebrated Independence Day with fireworks and music.
On Saturday, July 4, 2020 from 8-10pm ET (live)/PT (tape), NBC broadcast all-star musical performances and the nation's largest patriotic pyrotechnic display. TODAY anchors Craig Melvin and Dylan Dreyer co-host the 2020 MACY'S 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR, which begins with a special performance by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman. Black Eyed Peas, the Killers, Lady A, John Legend, Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley take the stage before the fireworks begin. Spectators in New York City and from coast-to-coast have a front row view to the unparalleled barrage of color, light and sound. An encore presentation will follow from 10-11pm ET/PT on NBC.

To allow New Yorkers to experience the fireworks without creating crowds, the annual Independence Day spectacle was reimagined as a series of neighborhood shows. Beginning June 29 and culminating on July 4, the displays launched unannounced on select evenings at one or two land- or water-based locations across New York City. Each brief five-minute display showcased Macy's signature pyrotechnic design and scale. Firing thousands of dazzling shells per minute, with heights reaching up to 1,000 feet at select locations, this year's showcase gave millions of New Yorkers across the city spectacular views from the comfort of their homes and neighborhoods. The entertainment special will feature a presentation of the full Macy's Fireworks show captured throughout the week, including a live grand finale.
