Watch 4th Of July Fireworks Live Stream For Free

4th of July Fireworks 2020 Live: Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks 2020 Live Stream The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is a virtual show this year, but you can watch it and live fireworks shows in New York City and Fourth of July weekend will lack a certain oomph in Massachusetts this year.

The 2020 Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, as have town fireworks shows across the state. Sure, someone in your neighborhood will probably set off a few they purchased in New Hampshire, but the timing of those is unpredictable.

This year, your best bet may be to watch one of several major fireworks shows on TV or online. You’ll have no shortage of choices, either, as the Boston Fireworks Spectacular (dubbed “A Boston Pops Salute to Our Heroes” this year), Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular in New York City, and A Capitol Fourth in Washington D.C. will all be televised.

Here’s how to watch all three fireworks shows on TV or online this July 4.

‘A Boston Pops Salute to Our Heroes’
Back in May, Boston’s annual Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular was canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Keith Lockhart and Co. will still provide patriotic entertainment with “A Boston Pops Salute to Our Heroes,” a pre-recorded performance airing at 8 p.m. July 4. The program will pay tribute to frontline workers and those who lost their lives during the coronavirus pandemic with a mix of new performances, “all-time favorite moments” from recent celebrations, and “a retrospective fireworks extravaganza.”

How to watch: “A Boston Pops Salute to Our Heroes” will air at 8 p.m. July 4 locally on WHDH-TV and nationally on Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg Radio, and on the Bloomberg website. For those planning to watch other fireworks at 8 p.m., the digital stream of “A Boston Pops Salute” will be available for 24 days after the July 4 broadcast, and it repeats at 11 p.m. on Bloomberg Television.

“A Capitol Fourth”
John Stamos and Vanessa Williams will emcee the 2020 edition of the annual Washington D.C. show, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. The broadcast will feature performances by artists like Patti LaBelle, John Fogerty, The Temptations, and Trace Adkins, as well as footage from previous editions. The show will conclude with live fireworks from Washington D.C., with PBS promising more cameras than ever will capture the pyrotechnics.

How to watch: “A Capitol Fourth” will air at 8 p.m. July 4 locally on PBS affiliates WGBH-TV as well as on the PBS website. If you’re looking to watch other fireworks at 8 p.m., “A Capitol Fourth” will immediately repeat on WGBH-TV at 9:30 p.m.

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks
Crowding the 8 p.m. timeslot on July 4, you can also tune into NBC to watch Macy’s annual fireworks show. Macy’s has changed the playbook a bit this year due to the coronavirus, holding unannounced five-minute displays all week before the grand finale on Saturday hosted by “Today” anchor Craig Melvin. Musical guests expected to make virtual appearances include John Legend, Black Eyed Peas, Brad Paisley, The Killers, Tim McGraw, and the newly renamed Lady A.

How to watch: “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks” will air locally on NBC 10 Boston at 8 p.m., and will be available to watch on the NBC app.
