Hey Columbus, are you ready for the largest display of fireworks around? It’s time for Red, White & Boom!

The 38th Annual Red, White & Boom, happening Tuesday Jul 3, is expected to attract over 400,000 people downtown. It is by far the “largest single day event in Columbus and features the most recognized firework display in the Midwest.”

Children’s Park, open from 12-8 p.m., is celebrating its seventh year at the corner of Neil Ave. and Long St. This area will feature interactive activities for kids of all ages!

The 2018 Ford Oval of Honor Red, White & BOOM! Parade presented by the Central Ohio Ford Dealers will step off at 5:30 p.m. from the Main St. Bridge, turn north on Front St., and disband at the corner of Front St. and Spring St.

Two stages, Long St. Stage and Bicentennial Stage, will be providing live music all day long!

Fireworks will be fired from the east bank of Genoa Park at 10:00 p.m. This year’s Grand Finale, presented by Marathon, promises to be another show stopper that you will not want to miss!
