2021 “Red, White & Boom” Postponed From July 2nd Date

Presented By McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

Problems getting a permit approved in time, has caused the Board of Trustees for Columbus’ “Red, White & Boom” to postpone their originally scheduled July 2nd date.

Their website states the following:

Red White & Boom! (RW&B!), a 501 c3 non-profit that has presented RW&B! for 39 years is announcing there will be no Red, White and Boom! on Friday, July 2nd.  After months of working with city leaders through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic we have received word that this year’s event will not receive permitting by the city of Columbus for the originally scheduled date of Friday, July 2nd.

While disappointed Central Ohioans will not be able to attend the largest fireworks show in the Midwest on its original date, the Board of Trustees for RW&B! has committed to continue working with Mayor Ginther’s office to find an appropriate alternative date, either in late summer or early fall.  The Red, White and Boom! Board of Trustees is made up of leaders from NBC4, G&J Pepsi, Encova Insurance and WNCI.
