The Fourth of July festival held in downtown Columbus, Ohio on the riverfront. Red, White & Boom! has been held since 1986 and has grown to be more of a festival every year since them. It's essentially an all day event held on July 3, with concessions, live music, games and other entertainment. The fireworks themselves are done by Sunset Fireworks, Ltd. out of St. Louis and claims to be the largest Fourth of July fireworks display in the MidWest. A live soundtrack is broadcast on a local radio station to accompany the fireworks, which of course always ends with God Bless the USA. It's a pretty good time, if you can tolerate being packed downtown with around 700,000 people. If not, it's broadcast live on television for your home viewing enjoyment.
