4th of July Live Stream: Happy Independence Day! This Fourth of July will mark America’s 234th birthday and the event will be filled with parades, concerts, marching bands, carnival rides and fireworks extravaganza from across the nation.

Tween heartthrob Justin Bieber will highlight the star-studded Macy’s NBC July 4th tonight. This year’s celebration is being hosted by Nick Cannon of “America’s Got Talent” and Alison Sweeney of “The Biggest Loser”, and will feature performances from Enrique Iglesias, LeAnn Rimes and appearances from “Eclipse” cast members.

In Illinois, the annual Champaign County Freedom Celebration Parade will go from Champaign to Urbana on Sunday afternoon. Providence is also hosting a weekend celebration at India Point Park, and the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra Pops Program will perform this evening, followed by spectacular fireworks display.

Along with fireworks, concerts and parades, no coverage of the Independence Day is complete without footage of the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. The contest is free and open to the public.

You can enjoy the fireworks from New York City beginning at 9 p.m. EDT and you can watch it live online HERE.
