We made it to Friday!
We are entering that “in-between” time of year, where it’s not yet spring, and not really winter. Which makes figuring out what to do a little difficult. (Do you do something inside? Venture outside?)
Daily through March 11; Penguin Parades on Sat. and Sun. when the temps are under 50 degrees.
Maybe you won’t get to see the #bestparadeinamerica, but you should still head to the Zoo this weekend for half-price admission, special animal encounters and, of course, some fresh air!
11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, Clifton Cultural Arts Center
Explore new arts in your neighborhood! Join us for a day-long celebration of the local arts groups that are making Cincinnati amazing, all thanks to Macy’s and ArtsWave. Activities lineup includes:
- Arts & Crafts: Join CCAC in making Springtime Banjos with your budding musicians!
- Musical Adventures with Corryville Suzuki Project, an exciting program of folk songs, jazz, fiddle tunes and classical played by young musicians, ages 5-18. The performers will demonstrate various games used to learn to play stringed instruments.
- ROKCincy presents “Wizard of Oz”: Using the beloved and familiar story made famous by the 1939 film, we’ve added operatic classics to enhance the drama and retell the tale as only ROKCincy can. The performance is 40 minutes in length, appropriate for kids of all ages, and includes a Q&A session with the cast.
