Happy 4th of July Columbus! It’s time to celebrate our nation’s Independence! This July 4th will look a bit different, but we’re still excited to bring you our list of Independence Day celebrations in Central Ohio!


Red, White, & BOOM!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Red, White, & Boom will not be able to take place on its original date of July 2nd. However, there are plans for a celebration to occur either in late summer or early fall. When the RW&B fireworks display is able to happen, it will be the largest fireworks show in all of Ohio, so don’t miss it!
