Red, White & Boom is on the 3rd of July.
According to Wikipedia's Red White & Boom entry:
"Red, White & Boom is the name of a number of annual fireworks shows in the United States, held on or near July 4 to celebration the nation's Independence Day. The title is a pun on "red, white, and blue," the colors of the American flag.
The largest is in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Attendance typically averages 500,000 people but has been as high as 750,000. Red, White & Boom was started in 1981 by WNCI and WCMH-TV and is paid for by corporate sponsors. A few hundred of the attendees begin gathering over 24 hours before the fireworks, and Bicentenial Park is typically full of people with tents by mid-morning the day of the fireworks. Entertainment typically starts at 11 a.m. or noon there. Veterans Memorial also has people gathering early as that is the offical spot for RV's."
This is the 27th annual Red White and Boom in Columbus.
I go most years but not early... I am not one of those people who camps out all day.
The parade is at 6:00 - schedule, directions, parking entertainment and more is available on Channel 4's Red White & Boom site.
