Cincinnati Bell "Flyerworks" Helicopter Makes Aug. 1 Fountain Square Landing
Celebration Kicks Off Promotion to Win Ride to 2012 Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks


CINCINNATI – [July 30, 2012] – Cincinnati Bell today announced plans for a special celebration at Fountain Square on Wednesday, Aug. 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to kick off its third annual "Fastest Way to the Fireworks" promotion. The event includes a landing of the Cincinnati Bell "Flyerworks" helicopter at 9 a.m. on Fountain Square and live broadcasts by WEBN and Fox19. Several local vendors and sponsors of the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks are also expected to participate. 

Cincinnati Bell’s "Fastest Way to the Fireworks" promotion offers a chance to win a helicopter ride to the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks on Sunday, Sept. 2, and VIP seating at the fireworks. The promotion runs from Aug. 1 to Aug. 26. Entries will be accepted beginning Aug. 1 at www.facebook.com/cincinnatibell or at any participating Cincinnati Bell retail store. 

"The Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks is one of our city’s most popular events, drawing more than half a million people to the banks of the Ohio River," said Ted Torbeck, president of Cincinnati Bell Communications. "In fact, the fireworks show is so popular that transportation can be a challenge. Our ‘Fastest Way to the Fireworks’ promotion offers the opportunity to fly over the traffic and enjoy the spectacular show from VIP seating on the Serpentine Wall." 

Two winners plus one guest each will enjoy hassle-free roundtrip transportation to the 2012 Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks on Sept. 2, courtesy of Cincinnati Bell and Stratus Helicopters of Cincinnati. After taking off from Lunken Field in Stratus’ Robinson R44 II helicopter, the winners and their guests will land at P&G Pavilion and be escorted to special VIP seating along the Serpentine Wall.
