CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Aaah, Labor Day. The symbolic end of summer. The last day to wear seersucker.

It may seem like all things you love are coming to an end. However, here at FOX19 we want you to know there are miles of fun ahead - Beginning this weekend!

Starting with the obvious, the 2013 Cincinnati Bell / WEBN Fireworks at P&G Riverfest is Sunday. It's basically a full day of people, food and drinks in all directions ending with an awesome Rozzi's Famous Fireworks show on the river. The whole shebang starts at noon. If you're going, go early.

AND, if you're not going, FOX19 is the TV media partner of the event, and you can see the entire show live on our TV station, and our free mobile appBOOMs so loud, it'll #WakeTheUndead (or your cat).

Fan of 'The Amazing Race'? The Great Amazing Race is a fun and family-friendly obstacle course and adventure race combined, modeled after the popular TV show. Pairs - kids & adults - complete a one mile course filled with challenges. Kicks off in West Chester on Sunday. Register here:

Feeling a bit more wild? The Cincinnati Zoo's Cheetah Run 5K is also Sunday at 8 a.m. Enjoy a nice jog or walk through the zoo's beautiful gardens and exotic animal exhibits - perhaps even one of those mist machines! Get the details:

The AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tourney serving up aces all weekend at the Lidner Family Tennis Center in Mason. Witness some amazing sand volleyball and some ridiculously fit athletes. Tournament runs Saturday-Monday. Purchase tickets here:

After all that fitness... It'll be time to eat in the 859. The first annual Taste of Campbell County is cooking up goodness this weekend in Bellevue, KY. Located across from the Party Source on Fairfield Ave. running Friday-Sunday.

So in conclusion... This Labor Day, have fun, be safe, celebrate the amazing contributions of workers everywhere and get excited for FOOTBALL.
