We’ll send you a rundown of the top five stories every day

Maybe you nailed your Fourth of July plans: You hosted the barbecue, you cracked open the beers (now aptly named "America" for a limited time only) and you did it all while wearing red, white and blue and texting using Kim Kardashian West's new festive kimojis. But everyone knows a celebration of our nation's independence isn't complete without fireworks. 

Those in New York City for the holiday would be remiss if they missed out on Macy's 4th of July Firework Spectacular, the annual fireworks display over the East River. Everyone else would be remiss if they didn't catch the special on television or stream it online.

Anyone near a TV can watch the 40th-annual spectacular — which will include performances from artists including Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran and Flo Rida — on NBC starting at 8 p.m. EST. According to ABC News, the fireworks show itself is expected to begin at 9:25 p.m. and last for about 25 minutes. 

To stream online, viewers can visit NBC's live website on their desktop or mobile devices — no cable provider password required.
