Two icons are teaming up for this year’s 37th annual fireworks spectacular.

Macy’s will join together with the Empire State Building.

This year’s program will feature 40,000 blasts above the Hudson River between west 24th and 40th Streets beginning at 9 p.m.

It will also include a patriotic light show on the Empire State Building’s spire.

The building’s new LED lighting system can produce 16 million colors and several new effects.
