Talk about a fire festival!

Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks will once again light up the night sky over the Brooklyn Bridge this year, according to a rep for the famed department store.

The pyrotechnic display will launch tens of thousands of shells and effects from the span and from four barges off a nearby Manhattan pier at about 9:20 p.m., stunning spectators along the East River waterfront, according to the department giant’s master blaster.

“With a barrage of stunning shells and effects launching from its grand span and towers, along with tens of thousands more effects coloring the night from barges on the lower East River, this year’s display promises to be a spectacle to remember,” said Susan Tercero, the fireworks’ executive producer.

Macy’s has fired the patriotic display for more than four decades and this year it plans to add three times more firepower than last year, including from more than a dozen points along the Kings County’s namesake bridge and its towers throughout the 25-minute display.

The spectacle has attracted millions of spectators in previous years and the company will announce the full details of the viewing locations, access points, special performances, and more in early June.
