Red, White & Boom 2016!
The 36th annual Red, White & Boom will light up the Columbus sky on July 1, 2016. This all-day event attracts over 400,000 people to downtown Columbus to celebrate our country’s Independence Day. This exciting celebration began in 1981 when 30,000 people gathered in Bicentennial Park to watch a small fireworks display. It has boomed into what is now the largest single-day event in Columbus, featuring the most recognized firework display in the Midwest. Each firework is custom made for Red, White and Boom. Festivities begin at 11 am, and conclude with the Grand Finale Fireworks, presented by Marathon at 10 p.m. Some of the activities featured during this event include Columbia Gas’ Children’s Park, Arena District’s Taste of Boom, the Ford Oval of Honor Red, White & Boom! Parade at 6pm, and numerous musical acts on four different stages. For details on parking and activities, go to www.redwhiteandboom.org.
