Macy's promised the biggest July 4th fireworks show in years, and they delivered: The pyrotechnical display, featuring 60,000 shells from five barges, lit up New York City's sky on Tuesday night.

The sparkling show featured new effects, including "ghost peonies, orange bees, and pulsing happy faces in 23 electrifying colors including fuchsia, lemon and aqua," according to Macy's. This was the 41st edition of the festivities, and the event lasted around 25-minutes.

The barges were relocated further up the East River this year, giving Midtown, Greenpoint, and Long Island City the best views, and leaving Brooklyn Bridge Park—a popular destination for the fireworks in previous years—in the dark.
