Reserve Tickets for RiverBlast 2015

 Enjoy the WEBN-Cincinnati Bell Labor Day weekend fireworks from air-conditioned comfort at the Newport Aquarium and support the work of the Gateway Foundation at the same time!

Reserve tickets now for RiverBlast 2015, the annual fundraiser hosted by the Gateway Community & Technical College Foundation. Proceeds support the Foundation, which works to enhance the programs and services supporting Gateway Community & Technical College students.

The public is invited to join the festivities that begin at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 6, and view the fireworks from the best seats on the river. Big Dave from B-105 will be on hand to lead the fun! Ticket price of $150 per person includes appetizers, a penguin encounter, access to the Newport Aquarium, full bar, a multi-course sit-down dinner, and a private terrace for fireworks viewing with security, individual seats for every guest, and a silent auction with must-have finds! A private lot is reserved to assure RiverBlast guests access to parking. Private or corporate tables and sponsorships are also available.

Guests will have full use of the Aquarium with all it has to offer the entire evening. The silent auction concludes before the fireworks begin. After the fireworks, enjoy coffee and dessert while you wait for the crowd and traffic to clear.
