Can I come alone? Yes 98% of those attending will come on their own. We expect over 150 people between both locations.
Dress code: Summer casual
How will I find the group? We will have signs.
What if it rains? The fireworks are rain or shine. You re paying for the party not the fireworks (Macy's is paying for them!)
Could we get a closer place? We have decided to view from this location because it will be way too crowded closer to the barges. You will have a good view regardless. If you wish to venture away from the group to get closer you can.
Can I just come for the party and not see the fireworks? Yes
