Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler & Macy’s Create a Star-Spangled Fourth of July!
Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler has a huge week of events in celebration of our nation’s Independence Day.
To kick off the week, Laura will be spending the day with media today and will participate in the closing bell ceremony with Macy’s at the New York Stock Exchange.
Tomorrow, 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 Yorks Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies baseball game at Citi Field.
After the game, Laura and Kory will attend Macy’s 36th 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 36th annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks will fire more than 40,000 pyrotechnic shells during an approximate 25-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 1,600 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 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular beginning at 9:00 PM (check local listings).
Viewing, and other show information is available at www.macys.com/fireworks.
Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
