Cincinnati River Front (Seasonal): "WEBN/Toyota Fireworks" Top 5 Page for this destination Cincinnati Nightlife Tip by kahunayummy

Cincinnati Nightlife: 38 reviews and 62 photos


Labor Day weekend means two things in Cincinnati.

No work for most of us on Monday, and Riverfest on Sunday.

The annual Riverfest Toyota-WEBN fireworks fills the Cincinnati skyline Sunday night.

Hundreds of thousands of people line up early along the banks of the Ohio River to get a good view of the fireworks and to enjoy the Riverfest activities.

Spectators have to allow plenty of time to get down to the river, because nearby streets are closed for the hugely popular event and many had to hike a distance from where they park their cars or bus stops.

But the traffic hassle doesn't seem to stop people from coming back year after year.

"Well, it's a Cincinnati tradition and I just enjoy fireworks," said a Spectator, of Amelia Ohio. "I was born on July 3 and it's always been a part of my life -- just to go see fireworks!"

"The city puts on such a wonderful show for everybody," said a small child named Nash Alexander, of Manila, "and everybody gets so excited every year, cause it's like the end of the summer."

"It is our big blow out," said Arlene Henson.
