Labor Day is here and we say farewell to Summer 2011…
Anyone not living under a rock knows that on Labor Day Weekend, the place to be is on the Ohio River for P&G Riverfest at Sawyer point, with the headlining attraction of course being the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks. As long as I can remember, this has been the epitome of family fun in Cincinnati. Plan to spend the whole day on Sunday (you’ll need to drop your blanket early for primo seats) and stay for the whole day of activities. First timers can visit here for a list of all the do’s and don’ts for Riverfest.
Don’t forget about the Rubber Duck Regatta at 3pm on Sunday – there is just something awesome about seeing that many ducks (over 100,000!) dive head first into the unknown. And bonus – it’s for an amazing cause. Read all about it in Quacky’s post from last week!
If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Downtown but still want to catch the fireworks on Sunday, Katie shared that you can purchase a spot at the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky (kids are free!) to watch the fireworks. The proceeds benefit the Children’s Home. Visit their Eventbrite page for more details and to purchase tickets.
The Hamilton County Parks are throwing a Summer send off Saturday 2pm-4pm at Winton Woods – games, a scavenger hunt, animals and more. Visit their site for more details on this event and many others happening this weekend and all month long.
Got a kid into planes? Head to Wright Patt’s National Museum of the US Air Force for a giant scale model air plane show all weekend long. Read more here about this exciting event. You’ll be their hero I guarantee.
