HOBOKEN - While the weather may not have been beautiful today, preparations were under way in Hoboken for the thousands who will flock there to watch fireworks tomorrow.

Those coming to Hoboken will be able to watch the Macy's Fourth of July fireworks without having to deal with the hassle of going into Manhattan.

Officials say that they expect people to begin showing up as early as 9 a.m. to get the best spots to watch the show.

There will be a number of street closures, including River Street and Sinatra Drive starting at 8 a.m., according to officials.

Businesses are also gearing up to handle the rush of spectators looking for food and fun before and after the show.
