Labor Day Weekend: Riverfest in Cincinnati

Looking for something special to do this weekend? Come celebrate at Riverfest, an annual event in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky:
"Riverfest is Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky's big boom, the end of summer blowout that concludes with one of the largest fireworks displays in the Midwest.

This signature Cincinnati event began 32 years ago, when WEBN treated the tri-state to a fireworks show in honor of the radio station's 10th anniversary. The party at Sawyer Point, held annually on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, has grown into an all-day affair with music, food and family fun and entertainment all day (Cincinnati's Sawyer Point is a no-alcohol zone for Riverfest).

Nearly a half-million people attend on both sides of the river. Highlights: the Ohio/Kentucky shout-off just before the fireworks, and WEBN's soundtrack, choreographed with Rozzi's Famous Fireworks."
