This is the ultimate end-of-summer party in the Cincinnati region. The free, family-friendly festival begins at noon on Sunday of Labor Day weekend at Sawyer Point & Yeatman's Cove. The event includes live music, family fun zones, vendor booths, and a Live Broadcast from the Serpentine Wall with WEBN and the KiddChris Show starting at noon. The main event, Rozzi's Famous Fireworks display, lights up the sky starting at 9:05 p.m. and is synchronized with music broadcast on WEBN (102.7FM).
Plan to stake out your spot early on either side of the river and make a day of it. Along with Sawyer Point/Yeatman's Cove, popular viewing areas on the Ohio side include the Serpentine Wall (blankets can be placed on the wall starting at 6 a.m. Saturday - park reopens at 6 a.m. Sunday) and Smale Riverfront Park along the river, Mt. Adams on the hill just east of downtown, and Mt. Echo Park a few miles west of downtown. On the Kentucky side try the riverfront areas of Newport (below Newport on the Levee) and Covington (near the Roebling Suspension Bridge) or the overlook at Devou Park. If you're near the river, be sure to catch the Rubber Duck Regatta starting at 3 p.m. Read the Fireworks FAQ for even more information about the event.
NOTE: Street closures and parking restrictions go into effect at various times on Sunday. Several bridges and roads near the river will close by 6 p.m., so plan accordingly.
