Blink Cincinnati returned for a second year the weekend of October 10th and ran through the 13th. Never heard of Blink? According to Blink's official website it is "one of the largest light, art, and projection mapping events in the nation". It spanned more than 30 blocks, included live music and food vendors.
This might be a reach but I'm willing to bet that Blink will return to Cincinnati if not for 2020 than for 2021 (to keep in the pattern that has so far been established as making this event an every-other-year event). Why? Because the 2019 version of Blink brought more than 1.25 million into the city. As for now officials are remaining tight lipped about the return of Blink but if (and when) it does, your family needs to add attending Blink Cincinnati to your weekend plans and here's why...
3 Reasons Why Your Family Should Attend Blink
Okay, it's not free-free but it's mostly free. This year there was no admission ticket and if you can find free street parking you won't have to pay to park in a lot. There are food vendors and souvenir vendors on the streets but for an event that runs from 7PM to 11PM you really can eat before you get there and not pay a dime to see the amazing lights and projections.
You Can Cross State Lines
For Blink 2019 the event expanded into Kentucky. The Roebling Bridge turned into a walking-only bridge and was illuminated and synced to electric pop style music. Once you crossed into Kentucky there were more projections on buildings and more live music.
It's a Giant Light Show
DUH!! You should attend Blink if it returns because it is a feast for your eyes. It is a giant light show. Everywhere you turn there is something new to look at and in some "zones" as they called it there were interactive stations that make you part of the art.
