Military Involvement image

2019 marks the 100th anniversary for the establishment of the American Legion. The Red, Rhythm and Boom event will provide an opportunity to thank the local American Legion Post 194 for their ongoing contribution to local veterans and the Mason Community at large. The City will be partnering with American Legion Post 194 to offer additional military activities and attractions at the event and pay tribute to our local military and veterans. In honor of  our Nation’s active military and veterans, the City and American Legion are working together to create a video tribute of Mason’s local military and veterans to showcase at the Red, Rhythm and Boom event.  The City encourages all active military and veterans from the Mason community to submit a short video clip following the brief guidelines that can be found here.

Veterans and active military who participate in the tribute video will receive four free Kids Zone wristbands that can be used throughout the entire event in appreciation for their participation as well as their service! We encourage local veterans and active military from the Mason community to get involved by contacting redrhythmboom@masonoh.org.

The fun will begin at 4:00 p.m. with access to carnival and kid zone activities such as interactive inflatables, bounce houses, carnival games and more! Guests can also enjoy a wide variety of food options as well as adult beverages available throughout the evening. Stage entertainment will kick off at 6:00 p.m. with a skydiving exhibit presented by FASTRAX Skydiving and continue throughout the night until a fireworks display presented by Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks at 10:00 p.m.  We hope you can join us!
