Macy's Independence Day show features socially distant fireworks

As People shares, the 5-minute long shows were created as a way for New Yorkers to enjoy the fireworks while still practicing social distancing. They aim to "showcase Macy's signature pyrotechnic design and scale," some launching as far as 1000 feet in the air!
Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular will air on July 4 at 8 PM ET on NBC, with an encore performance set to follow at 10 PM ET.
