Community Band Festival Sunday!

I'm not a big fan of the Taste of Cincinnati, which is THE big event this weekend in Downtown Cincinnati. There are a few festival type rides for the kids, but the whole walking while eating and negotiating a crowd, just doesn't sound like fun to me.

My idea of an enjoyable Memorial Day Sunday would be sitting in the lawn at Sawyer Point, P&G Pavillion, by the river, listening to Concert Band Music, while the kids play on the adjacent playground. Event starts at 2pm, is free and will include over 200 musicians playing marches and other concert music.

Taste is a mysterious event. Tens of thousands of wide-bodied suburbanites arrive downtown in their SUVs to eat food from national restaurant chains off of paper plates. Are they thrilled to be so close to the scenes they see on Channel 5 and Channel 19 news? Does the fake Italian food taste better in the glaring sun? Perhaps they'll take the time to explain here.

LOL, radarman! Mike, thanks for the heads up on an alternative event!

Thanks for the post citykin! Bands used to cover Cincy in the summer back in the 50's and 60's, maybe we'll see a little more one day.
