BLUE ASH, Ohio — Red, White & Blue Ash is back at Summit Park! The decades-old tradition is one of the Tri-State’s most popular Fourth of July events.

Watch tonight's fireworks show below:

This year’s event looked more like it did before the pandemic with the return of live music and food vendors. Singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw performed, as well as Cincinnati natives Blessid Union of Souls.

According to organizers, there were roughly 39 food vendors and a beer garden. There will be rides and games at the park too.

Last year, organizers announced they would only have a fireworks show at the event due to COVID-19 case spikes. There was no live music and no food vendors.

“I think people are itching to have something fun to do and get back out and see their neighbors, see the community be in a crowd,” said Rachel Murray, the Communications Coordinator for the City of Blue Ash. “There is something electric about seeing all the people filling up the Great Lawn here that really can't be beat.”

Murray said there was more parking this year compared to years past. She said some nearby businesses are offering up spots in their lots too.
