    Dizzy’s and The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town State Park will be jazzing it up on Fourth of July with their annual 4th of July “Special $5 Family Jazz Barbecue.” Starting at noon you can enjoy the delicious food and drinks. The Jazz band will start at 3 p.m. so be sure to arrive early to get a good seat.

    The location of New York City's July 4 fireworks show on the East River shifted slightly shortly before the show was set to begin, Macy's announced Friday, due to a high rip current.

    The show, which will continue to be centered near the Brooklyn Bridge, will now take place slightly south because a barge will be repositioned, the retailer said.

    "While the weather has cleared for tonight's Macy's Fireworks display, due to an expected high rip current, the Macy's Fireworks barge previously set to be positioned between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges will be repositioned south of the Brooklyn Bridge for the event," Macy's said in a statement. "This is being done out of an abundance of caution."
