Riverfest Hot Spots: What's Your Favorite?

OK, with the countdown to Riverfest rounding the last lap, I have to ask: What's your favorite place to watch the fireworks?

For me, it's a toss-up. After spending many years on the Ohio side, I defected to Northern Kentucky. When I lived in Mansion Hill, my neighbors threw a kick-ass party every year, and we'd hang out All Day drinking, maybe stop in at Mansion Hill Tavern to say hi (and have a tiny drink) and of course, wander around town chatting up the National Guard and generally soaking in the craziness. Then when the show started, we'd meander down to the river to watch the fireworks. In Covington now, I've continued to enjoy their party, though I wander over later in the day to enjoy time in my neighborhood, first. Last year they were out of town so I went to a party in Southgate, and the homeowners had a second story deck which commanded fabulous fireworks views.

I'll probably find myself back in Newport once again for Riverfest this year.

So, where will you go to watch the fireworks?
