Miss America and Macy's Create Star-Spangled Holiday

Tuesday, 03 July 2012 12:07

july4Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler has a huge week of events in celebration of Independence Day. To kick off the week, Laura will spend the day with media today and will participate in the closing bell ceremony with Macy’s at the New York Stock Exchange.

Wednesday, July 4, Laura will join Macy’s Star Spangled Sing Off winner, Kory Leigh Glattman, to sing a special rendition of the National Anthem prior to the start of the New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies baseball game at Citi Field. After the game, Laura and Kory will attend Macy's Thirty-Sixth Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration. Laura served as a vocal mentor to Kory, who recorded a special rendition of the National Anthem, which will be played during the finale of the fireworks spectacular.

The Thirty-Sixth annual Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks will fire more than forty thousand pyrotechnic shells during an approximate twenty-five-minute synchronized display. Designed in collaboration with SOUSA Fireworks, the show will be set off from barges positioned on the Hudson River from 18th to 48th streets. With an average of sixteen hundred shells launched per minute, Macy’s Fireworks show is truly a dazzling spectacle.

Independence day revelers from coast-to-coast will have a front row view of the pyro in the sky by tuning to NBC’s national broadcast of Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular beginning at 9 p.m. (check local listings).
