New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says there will be a Macy’s July 4th celebration with fireworks, though no details have been hashed out yet.
De Blasio said he spoke with Macy’s CEO Jeff Gennette. who agreed that the company wanted to celebrate in some way.
“One way or another, the show will go on,” de Blasio said, adding that fireworks will be a part of the plan.
“This is a day we cannot miss," de Blasio said. "There’s no day like the Fourth of July."
The mayor said there are a lot of questions that need to be answered between now and the celebration, but that the city will conduct the celebration “in a way that’s safe and smart.”
Earlier this week, de Blasio announced that New York City has canceled all non-essential permitted events in June.
