Macy’s has been staging Fourth of July fireworks extravaganzas since the nation’s Bicentennial.

Macy’s revealed Thursday that the show will go on, in its traditional way during the evening of July 4, with the kind of massive fireworks display it has held every year on the holiday since 1976, the nation’s Bicentennial, with the exception of last year when the pandemic forced a change in the format. Last year, Macy’s held scaled down, shortened fireworks displays each night from June 29 to July 4. The fireworks were launched from one or two land or water-based locations in the city’s five boroughs. There were no announcements beforehand about their whereabouts so there wouldn’t be crowds gathering.

Viewing will be available for verified fully vaccinated spectators on elevated portions of the FDR Drive in Manhattan with entry points at East 23rd, East 34th and East 42nd Streets. ADA/Special Needs public viewing for verified fully vaccinated spectators will be accessible at the East 34th Street entry point.

Macy’s said as health and safety regulations evolve, these changes may impact the viewing plan. The retailer said spectators should check for the most up-to-date viewing information including entry details, health and safety protocols and marine viewing.

US increasingly unlikely to meet Biden's July 4 vax goalFor months, President Joe Biden has laid out goal after goal for taming the coronavirus pandemic and then exceeded his own benchmarks. The White House has launched a month-long blitz to combat vaccine hesitancy and a lack of urgency to get shots, particularly in the South and Midwest, but it is increasingly resigned to missing the president’s vaccination target. The administration insists that even if the goal isn't reached, it will have little effect on the overall U.S. recovery, which is already ahead of where Biden said it would be months ago. Maybe his goal should have been to reach that number for responsible adults who take public health, and stemming the tide of a viral pandemic, seriously. Anyone at this point who is still on the fence is not once of those adults. And I think we know who we're talking about.
