Wednesday To-Do: Pops on the River

  • Pops on the River starts at noon on Wednesday at Riverfest Amphitheatre.

Noon. Riverfest Amphitheatre. Free.

Fireworks. Is there anything more universally loved by all of America than flashy explosions lighting up the night sky? I don't know, music maybe? Or perhaps food vendors? Shopping? Patriotism? Classic car shows? Amateur singing competitions? Free stuff? It's a tough call, no doubt.

But what if you combined all of those great American things — fireworks, music, food trucks, shopping, patriotism, classic cars and competitive amateur singing — into one big enchilada? And then what if it was free? (Well, the food and the shopping aren't free. I mean heck, freedom itself ain't free, but you get the idea here). Well pardner, if you took all that and added it up, what you'd have is Pops on the River, now in its 29th year.

But listen here now, don't you be bringing your coolers or your pets or your outside food and drink or your fireworks or your cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, pipes, hookahs or anything else like that. But do bring yourselves and your wide-eyed sense of wonderment and some cash and some donations of nonperishable food items.
