By any measure, this weekend is one of the year’s best for the number and variety of happenings around town. Chalk it up to May, traditionally the transitional month from spring to summer and indoor to outdoor. Obviously, this year’s weather has skipped the “spring” part of that transition, but the events are blooming right on schedule.
A lot of work (and money) has been put toward turning Elm Street into Cincinnati’s arts axis. How is that paying off? Well, four of our first five picks this week take place along a two-block stretch of Elm. And that doesn’t even count the CSO – and they’re playing, too. So park once, and enjoy often.
Celebrate everything Latino and enjoy the biggest variety of tacos in town at Cincy-Cinco.
The 15th annual three-day celebration adds Tacopolis to this year’s lineup of music, dance and food events.
It’s time for one of Cincinnati’s biggest outdoor scenes – Flying Pig Marathon weekend. More than 40,000 participants, with an average of about 20,000 for the Saturday events and 21,000 on Sunday, will run for charity. Approximately 100,000 spectators – Street Squealers – will line the course to inspire and motivate the runners.
Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati is the featured nonprofit for April’s “Final Friday” at the Pendleton Art Center.
The most basic elements of any story are a beginning, a middle and an end. The more nuanced elements include an introduction, interesting characters, conflict, high stakes, transformation and resolution. By any of these measures, the story of Cincy Stories remains incomplete. The end, or resolution, is nowhere in sight. But the power of a story, in the telling and the hearing, has been plain to see.
