Red White & Kaboom

COLUMBUS – The Fourth of July festivities kicked off in a big way with the eighth annual Red White & Kaboom event on Tuesday night.

The event was hosted by the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, and took place at Ag Park. The grounds were packed with people tailgating and enjoying all of the activities that were provided by groups such as the Columbus YMCA and Connection Christian Church.

The YMCA hosted a kids table filled with games and giveaways, and Connection Christian Church brought along their inflatable bounce house and obstacle course.

Musical entertainment was provided by Barrel House, and the fireworks display that took place at dusk was provided by Midwest Pyrotechnics.
