CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Break out the spandex and hair teasing combs – the 80s are coming back to Cincinnati.

WEBN announced Thursday that the 2014 Labor Day Weekend fireworks show will have a "Go 80s Retro" theme and FOX19 NOW will once again be the official broadcasting station.

A hallmark of summer in the Queen City, The Cincinnati Bell WEBN fireworks on August 31 will feature famous Rozzi's fireworks choreographed to a musical soundtrack from the big-hair decade.

"It's hard to believe that timeless favorites like Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and Big Hair Rock and Roll are now 30 years old! We will be bring back some of that magic to this year's event as we celebrate 102.7 WEBN's Birthday at the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks at P&G Riverfest," said Bo Matthews, Vice President of Programming at Channel Media.

P&G Riverfest is from noon until 10 p.m. at Sawyer Park and Yeatman's Cove. The fireworks show begins at 9:05 p.m. and can be watched live on FOX19 NOW and FOX19NOW.com.
