Red, White and Boom are Columbus's downtown fireworks. It's a pretty big deal and folks set their spots downtown early in the am, and even the day before. There's a boat launch near downtown, almost traffic free and definitely the best way to see the fireworks.
4th of july is melty Klondike bars,
lovely ladies and pickles,
paddling and the spectacle of a backwards flag
and of course fireworks:
So, Happy Birthday America!(nsfw)
