An Epic 4th of July Event

Norwegian Cruise Line's new ship, Norwegian EPIC, arrived in New York City in time for this year's 4th of July celebration from New York Harbour.   The largest ship in Norwegian Cruise Line's fleet was christened by Reba McEntire on July 2nd. 

Macy's 34th Annual Fireworks
Broadcasting Live from EPIC

The largest fireworks display in America will light up the New York skyline tonight starting at 9 PM Eastern.   The skies over the Hudson River will be ablaze with 40,000 dazzling displays of color as the nation's largest fireworks show marks the July Fourth holiday in New York.  Some of the effects will shoot 1,000 feet into the air so that they can be seen above Manhattan's skyscrapers.

Tonight's show will be broadcast live from the Norwegian Epic cruise ship and will feature performances by teen sensation Justin Bieber and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  As always, a special musical score,this year's entitled "American Harmony", will help set the stage for this moving pyrotechnic display.
