(Cincinnati) -- The Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks at P&G Riverfest will have an '80's theme this Labor Day Weekend.  A kickoff countdown at Fountain Square, Friday afternoon, introduced some of the events at this year's festival.

Cincinnati Bell has a limo, and a contest.  The winner gets a police-escorted ride with 9 of their friends, with a VIP viewing area for the fireworks.

Jane Weiler with Cincinnati Bell says this is their 8th year sponsoring the pyrotechnics.  Registration for the fastest way the fireworks contest is at any Cincinnati Bell store, or through their Facebook page.

Cincinnati Bell is offering free wifi at the event to make sure all the tweets, Facebook updates and Instagram photos are shared.  Weiler says anywhere there's large crowds, it can be difficult to stay connected, but they hope that won't be a problem.

The Rubber Duck Regatta, back for the 20th year, is the Freestore Foodbank's biggest fundraiser of the year, and Rachel Hhinger says they hope to raise a million dollars this time.

First prize for the Rubber Duck Regatta is a 2014 Honda Accord Sport, and a shot at a million dollars.  Ducks are $5 apiece, or 6 for $25.  Hinger says ducks are on sale now, at Kroger, and at Kemba Credit Unions.
