Events: Riverfest

By Megan Roehm · August 30th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Celebrate Labor Day and the end of summer in the most exciting way possible this year at Cincinnati Riverfest. Since 1977, Riverfest has drawn over 500,000 people out to enjoy live performances and the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN fireworks featuring Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks live on the river. This year’s pre-fireworks performances will feature more than 15 bands including Philosopher’s Stone, Stash, Livid, Big Rock Club, T Sly Trio, Kentucky 31, The Bluebirds and more.

The two top viewing spots are Newport on the Levee and downtown at Sawyer Point. There will be vendors on site with food, soft drinks and water, but no beer or coolers will make it into this alcohol-free event. All items will be checked at the entrances. Admission is free and the excitement begins at noon, with the fireworks display beginning at 9:05 p.m. Make sure you arrive early to find your perfect viewing spot! Bring your friends and family, blankets to sit on and a radio to blast WEBN all day long and join a half-million people in enjoying one of the most exciting events of the summer!
