Red, White and Boom!

The weather was perfect for this year's Red White & Boom! in downtown Columbus. More than half a million spectators converged upon multiple locations in the downtown area to view the fireworks.

A popular spot was Scioto-Audubon Metro Park. The park offered a fantastic view of the show, now in its 33rd year. Prior to the show food vendors, live entertainment and a Independence Day parade were held near the downtown riverfront to entertain visitors.More than 130 concessionaires and local restaurants lined the streets during the day.

Country star Craig Campbell, known for his single Fish, highlighted the entertainment lineup with his performance prior to the fireworks show.
