Ohio's Capital City's 39th Annual Independence Day Celebration

Red, White & BOOM! is not only Ohio’s largest fireworks display but the largest Independence Day fireworks display in the Midwest. BOOM! has been a destination, an experience, a tradition for hundreds of thousands of families. BOOM! celebrates country and community, promotes civic pride and honors America’s heroes, our military and veterans. BOOM! is a safe and FREE event for all to enjoy. Over 400,000 people will enjoy a full day of BOOM! events, including a parade, street festival, and two stages of live music entertainment.

Red, White & BOOM! is the largest single-day event in Columbus and that could not be possible without
BOOM!’s presenting sponsors Encova Insurance (formerly Motorists Insurance), NBC4, Pepsi and WNCI 97.9.
