Roughly a half-million people will gather along Cincinnati’s riverfront on Sept. 3 for the Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks, a local Labor Day weekend tradition that has featured free, family-friendly entertainment in the Cincinnati region for 47 years. The 30-minute fireworks show is part of the city’s Riverfest celebration and showcases Rozzi's Famous Fireworks choreographed to a soundtrack curated by local radio station WEBN (102.7 FM), an affiliate of iHeart Media.

Since 2015, Western & Southern has been the fireworks show’s co-title sponsor alongside WEBN. Last year’s Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks raised $975,000 for the 
Freestore Foodbank, which is equal to more than 3 million meals.

"Western & Southern has been and remains committed to making Cincinnati the best place to live, work and celebrate life," said 
John F. Barrett, president, chairman and chief executive officer of Western & Southern Financial Group. "From our support of initiatives that promote health and higher education to our sponsorship of events like the fireworks and tennis tournament, we continue to strive to make Cincinnati the most wonderful city in America. Our decision to partner with iHeart Media Cincinnati is another example of that commitment."
