Everyone's invited to the 9th annual Norwood Hometown Fireworks

The Norwood Fireworks Committee would like to invite everyone to the ninth annual Norwood Hometown Fireworks Celebration Wednesday, July 4, at Shea Stadium.  Gates will open at 6:00 p.m.

Featured entertainment:
  1. New this year is Hot Wax, an exciting, high-energy '50's - '60's show band.
  2. Rozzi's Famous Fireworks will provide a dazzling display of fireworks with a breathtaking finale.
  3. The ever popular Stattman from B105.1 FM will do a broadcast onsite, complete with giveaways and games to play.
  4. Cincinnati Zoo's Wings of Wonder will bring amazing birds for the crowd to enjoy.
The evening emphasizes fun for the whole family.  You can expect food and refreshments, as well as patriotic songs, face painting and castle bound.  No alcohol, coolers and pets are permitted on the stadium grounds or parking lots.

We have been honored with a generous contribution from the Carl H. Lindner Family.  This permits us to provide all our citizens with an event that is free and open to the public.  We are also pleased to recognize local businesses and civic groups that support the event through advertising and sponsorship dollars, as well as good old fashioned "volunteerism."  Sponsors include Carew International, Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions, Cintel, Cumulus, Norwood Business & Professional Women's Club, United Dairy Farmers, and The Urology Group.

The "Master of the Fireworks" portion of the program will feature 20 student finalists selected from Norwood elementary schools.  All finalists are introduced to the crowd , and one finalist will be selected as the designated "Master of the Fireworks" for 2012.  He or she will light the "signal rocket" for Rozzi to being the fireworks show.

Community awareness of this hugely popular summertime event continues to grow.  This will be an evening of fun for families and friends to enjoy.

Happy Birthday, America!
