Live video coverage of Macy’s and the Capitol Fireworks shows on NBC and PBS.

If you can’t get out to see the fireworks then the next best thing is to watch them on TV or stream them live and so here you go with how. Macy’s has been hosting breathtaking televised firework shows in New York City for quite some time. In fact, 2021 marks the 45th anniversary of the show. 

The show is on NBC starting at 8 pm and can be seen live on Channel 8 in the Bay Area and 2 in Orlando you can stream it here for free on or also for free on the Peacock app. The spectacular will feature more than just colorful fireworks. Blake SheltonReba McEntire, The Jonas Brothers, and other performers will take the stage to celebrate America’s birthday.

For the 41st year PBB will have the celebration from Washington, DC starting at 8 pm ET. The annual A Capitol Fourth airs on PBS Sunday, July 4 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. ET. Hosted by Vanessa Williams (who will also perform) and featuring performances by Jimmy Buffett, Renée Fleming (who will open the show with the national anthem), Cynthia Erivo, Mickey Guyton, Alan Jackson, Gladys Knight, Pentatonix, Train and more. You can hear the audio on your local National Public Radio station, and you can watch the show live online at PBS’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website

The local PBS station Channel 3 in Tampa/St. Pete has the fun and again you can watch for free here on or PBS also has a great website that gives you many fun angles to watch the event at this PBS site by clicking here you can also watch it if you have the PBS Passport app.
