Upcoming Events

Piatt Park Decorating

11am to 1pm November 17

8th/Garfield between Elm St and Vine St


Every year in November, members of the Downtown Residents Council volunteer to decorate Piatt Park, which runs from Elm Street to Vine Street at Eighth and Garfield. We install lighted wreaths on the arches and tie holiday ribbon around all the arch poles.

This year the tradition will continue, so if you’d like to join us between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 17th, please do.

Everything will be provided, including refreshments, provided by the Covenant First Presbyterian Church volunteers. It’s a great way to meet your fellow DRC members, and your work turns Piatt Park into a wonderful holiday dazzle. Interested? Please contact Alan Bunker at alanbunker@yahoo.com.

In honor of The Banks' 10-year anniversary, the traveling observation wheel SkyStar has been erected in Cincinnati on Freedom Way. The ride is 150 feet high and has 36 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas capable of holding up to six passengers at a time. Don't miss your chance to see unique views of the city, and if you're so inclined tweet a picture with @SkystarWheel. When the sun goes down, more than 1 million LED lights on the SkyStar brighten the riverfront.

Tickets cost $12.50 and are available at the ticket window. Ticket vouchers and hours of operation can be found online at www.skystarwheel.com Note that no refunds can be issued and that SkyStar Wheel may close due to weather or private events. The temporary attraction will be open until Dec. 2.
