The City Flea, July Edition!

Everyone will be ‘fleeing’ (pun intended!) to Washington Park this Saturday, July 13th from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. to join in the contagious energy that springs from Cincinnati’s original curated, urban flea market. The City Flea  is hosting its monthly market celebration this weekend and is inviting anyone and everyone!

This project began June 4th, 2011 and immediately left people wanting more! Their first summer season was declared a success due to the 70 + vendors sold, and since then, in the third season of operation, the Flea is home to about 170 creative, unique vendors.

There is no admission free, but they do ask that you bring a smile 🙂

Expect everything from food to ceramics to clothing and MUCH more! Spend your Saturday exploring the unique and talented vendors at Washington Park!

The City Flea site encourages people all around town, to “bring your friends, bring a few bucks, and most importantly, just bring it.”

Washington Park Grand Opening

A couple weeks ago, I talked about Washington Park and how I couldn’t wait for it to officially open! Well, it officially unveils tomorrow, July 6, and I got to take an official sneak peek press tour on Tuesday! I was so impressed! There’s a bandstand (complete with a concert lineup), dog park, play ground, interactive water feature (a 7,000-square-foot focal point, consisting of 130 pop jets that can be synchronized to music and lights!), massive civic lawn and a new 450-space parking lot. The renovation expanded the park from six acres to eight, occupying two full city blocks between 12th and 14th streets! Come see it for yourself at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening of Washington Park July 6, at 10am! Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and Parks Director Willie Carden will be joined by some popular guests! There will be Circus Performers, Free Popsicles from Street Pops, Free Waffles & Tea from Taste of Belgium, a performance by Japanese Childrens Choir, Explore Nature staff with Dig for Fossils and more!
