Last year, my family and I went to the Cincinnati Sports Club in the Fairfax/Hyde Park area for their Novemberfest event (I think this year it has another name). It was so fun, free, and open to the public (my family and I are not members). They had a bunch of inflatables, face painting, live animals, a magician, dancing and lots of activities for my kids (just to name a few!) It’s taking place again this Saturday, November 5th. Everyone should definitely stop by!!!
