P&G Riverfest & WEBN/Cincinnati Bell Fireworks: September 4 12pm

It’s that time of year again Cincinnati!  I’m sure most if not all of you know of this annual event.  The festivities start at 12pm on Sunday with live entertainment (see the schedule) all day on 3 different stages.  Plenty of food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Watch the Rubber Duck Regatta! Over 100,000 Rubber Ducks will be dumped off the Purple People Bridge at 3pm.  The owner of the winning duck will win a 2012 Honda Civic Sedan LX. Have you bought your duck yet?  All proceeds benefit the Freestore Foodbank.

The Fireworks will begin at 9pm.  If you go, scope out your prime fireworks watching spot pretty early in the day.  It will be crowded!

If you want to avoid the crowds, the fireworks will be on Fox 19 live.  The broadcast will begin at 8pm.  Enjoy from your living room!
