Live it Up Downtown – Sat. Sept. 15!

Live It Up Downtown is this Saturday, Sept. 15.  You can’t help but smile when you see the words, “Live It Up”.  Even though my family lives in a northern suburb of Cincinnati (Go Mason/Deerfield Twp.), we love visiting downtown Cincinnati.  There is so much to see, do and experience.  This Saturday, Downtown Cincinnati, Inc. and the Downtown Residents Council are pulling out one big welcome mat and inviting you to see why they love living downtown.  There will be something for everyone to enjoy.  Kids can see two free puppet shows with the Wump Mucket Puppets (3pm & 5pm), or give a high-five to one of our beloved mascots from the Cincinnati Reds (Gapper), Cincinnati Bengals (Who Dey), and Cincinnati Cyclones (Twister).

Visitors will enjoy plenty of live music on the square as well as a vast array of local art and cultural organizations and small businesses.  If you are new to downtown and wonder what it might be like to live there, then make sure you visit one of  the open houses to see if there is a rental or sale property that appeals to you (3-6pm). Kudos to  The Horseshoe Casino ,  4EG Entertainment Group ,  Taste of Belgium (yum) , 3CDC and Fountain Square for  supporting the festivities and welcoming us all to the Queen City!

Check out this list of who will be at Live It Up Downtown, and you’ll want to make sure you visit. The fun starts at 3pm and goes until 11pm.

Disclosure: My Dad is a member of the Downtown Residents Council and he asked me to share the love for downtown.  I was more than happy to oblige.  So, if you visit the DRC booth, make sure you stop by and say hi to “Triple M” (a.k.a. Mike the Maintenance Man). We’ll also be there enjoying the day.

When not blogging for Family Friendly Cincinnati, you can find Kristin writing on her personal blog, MasonMetu (from me to you).

    I’m thinking Chuck and I are def. going to attend this! As much time as we spend downtown we’ve always wondered what the lofts and such would be like. If I see your Dad I’m going to give that man a handshake (I’d say hug, but that’s I loved working for him at Miami!
