It began on a Thursday night as a modestly-promoted celebration of WEBN's 10th anniversary, with around 80,000 attendees. Now, 32 years later and 500,000 spectators strong, Cincinnati Bell and WEBN say goodbye to summer with an entire day of riverside partying. This year you'll get to watch BMX riders and skateboarders from ASA Entertainment show off their skills on the vert ramp, and professional skydivers will fall from above. At 9:05 p.m. sharp, the folks from Rozzi's Fireworks will answer every pyromaniac's prayers and present a 30-minute explosive extravaganza. Navigating the parking situation can be pretty hellish, so head to the riverfront early and enjoy the live music and entertainment leading up to the fireworks. Your pets, alcohol, outside food and beverages are not allowed to party with you, so bring cash for refreshments. Riverfront in Cincinnati and Newport. Noon. Free.
