The Blade's Red, White, KABOOM Weekend will feature a large fireworks display July 3 in downtown Toledo.
The fireworks traditionally have been July 4 -- which is a Monday this year -- but the event was moved forward a day so folks wouldn't have a late night before having to go to work the next morning.
The event is a three-day affair that runs July 1-3 and will include a July 1 show by Frontiers, a Journey tribute band, a July 2 concert by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, and a July 3 pre-fireworks concert by Alexander Zonjic and Friends.
A 5K heroes Run and 1K Walk will take place downtown July 2 to raise money for Heroes In Action, a military support outreach group that provides financial assistance, communications, care packages, and encouragement to current and former service members.
A number of other activities will occur over the holiday weekend, including a Kids Zone, Toledo's Top Talent Show, a dodgeball tournament, and, of course, wiener dog races.
Admission fee to Red, White, KABOOM is $3 per adult and kids 12 and older after 4 p.m. on each night.
