Maija Zummo

Come down early and claim your patch of grass, concrete or blanket (blankets can be placed to hold seats after 6 a.m. on Saturday) as the 37th P&G Riverfest and WEBN/Cincinnati Bell fireworks show and Labor Day celebration officially signals the end of summer.

Family-friendly performers of all kinds are set to appear at entertainment areas on both the Ohio and Kentucky sides of the river, with food and beverages available as well.

Listen to live music from bands Heaven’s Basement, Cinema Sleep, Seven Circle Sunrise and BoyMeetsWorld or just turn the radio to WEBN and turn it up for all-day Riverfest play.

Plus participate in the first Dent Schoolhouse zombie walk, a costumed walk of the undead along the Serpentine Wall. Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks cap off the evening.

Noon; fireworks begin at 9:05 p.m. Free. Cincinnati and Newport Riverfronts, webn.com .
