Reserve Tickets Now for Gateway's RiverBlast 2016

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 2016, the annual fundraiser hosted by the Gateway Community & Technical College Foundation. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from this event will provide scholarships to students in Gateway's workforce training programs.

The public is invited to join the festivities that begin at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4, 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, penguin encounter, access to the Newport Aquarium, two drinks from the bar, multi-course sit-down dinner and reserved private terrace for firework viewing with security and individual seats for every guest. A private lot is reserved to assure RiverBlast guests access to parking for an additional fee. Private or corporate tables and sponsorships are also available.

Guests will have full use of the Aquarium 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.
