    The 2012 Red, White & BOOM! Fireworks Show will begin at 10 p.m. along the Scioto River in downtown Columbus. Since its inception in 1981, Red, White & BOOM! has evolved into central Ohio’s premier Independence Day celebration.

    It is. Folks gather on the southern edge of the park to watch.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of what might be a good restaurant/bar to see the fireworks from? I have to work that day, and I don’t want to get mixed up in the crowds.

    There’s really not too many bars/restaurants that face the area where the fireworks shoot off from since it’s not a great view the other 364 days per year. Most Downtown restaurants/bars have buildings blocking the view…

    I think the River Club at Confluence Park does a big event for RW&B. They have a great view of the city and the fireworks from their patio. I do not know any details, but I am sure you could call them for info.

    Plus they have on-sight parking, so no long walks.

    The off ramp grass inside the Grandview Ave exit is a Carney Cultural Experience.

    from 200columbus newsletter:
    This year’s installment of Central Ohio’s famous Red, White & BOOM! Independence Day celebration will be bigger and better than ever as organizers celebrate Columbus’ Bicentennial. Highlights include a longer fireworks show as well as a “birthday surprise.” In addition, there will be more concessions, new games and activities and a longer parade on a new route.

    Looking for a different way to experience Red, White & BOOM!? Check out Ballpark Boom, where you can enjoy the fireworks from the comfort of Huntington Park. In addition to a wide range of activities the whole family can enjoy, there will be live entertainment by the Street Players and McGuffey Lane. Tickets are just $5. In addition, to make the event accessible to all members of our community, 200Columbus, in partnership with Huntington Bank, has a limited number of free tickets available for economically disadvantaged families, and is working with community centers on each side of the city to distribute them.

    We have watched a movie the last couple of years after RW&B and it’s pretty awesome to come out a couple of hours later and for all the traffic to be cleared out.

    For $185 a person you can have dinner and drinks while watching the fire works from M’s patio. Pricey but would be a great view.

    Is there anything happening at 400 W Rich, or Dinin’ Hall that night? Seems like they might have a good spot to hang out before crossing under the railroad tracks to see the fireworks.
