Rozzi's Famous Fireworks Weingartner / WVXU

If you want to see the Western & Southern/WEBN-FM Fireworks this year, you’ll have to be near the Ohio River downtown on Sept. 6.

For the first time since 1984, WEBN-FM doesn’t have a TV deal for the hugely popular "last blast of summer."


Cincinnatians say goodbye to summer this weekend in the usual style with a half million people expected to pack both sides of the Ohio Sunday for Riverfest.


Fireworks will light up the night sky over Coney Island Saturday in the nation's first-ever "Fire Up The Night." 

The event will pit fireworks teams from the U.S., Canada and Mexico against each other in a pyrotechnic extravaganza.  It's being sponsored by Cincinnati-based fireworks legend Rozzi's Famous Fireworks.

Alonzo Fireworks from  New York, Sirius Pyrotechnics from Quebec and Lux Pirotecnia from Mexico City  will be competing for international bragging rights.

Rozzi's will put on a show after the competition.
