fun this weekend 8/17-19/2012?

We will be visiting this weekend. Is there anything fun we should know is happening? Fests? Concerts? Special Exhibits? Anything during the day or the night.

thanks

The above is a (usually) a good place to search for happenings but the web site seems to be misbehaving a bit. You can of course join the fun at Great American Ballpark and watch the Reds pound the Cubs. There are also a couple of nice exhibits at the Cincinnati Art Museum (free except for parking) and while in the vicinity you can check out the Mt. Adams neighborhood.

I might have to check out the belly dancers as it is not too far from me ;)

This weekend is the final weekend for the Pompeii exhibit at the Museum Center. It is very well-done and a couple of hours there would not be amiss.

Agreed! Pompeii exhibit is worth a visit although it is probably pricey for non-members.

There is also a city flea market (10-4) at Washington Park in Over-the-Rhein http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Over-the-Rhine

(easy walk or hop on a north-bound bus from Fountain Square). We are going to check it out. I've not been to one but it might be worth a peek (http://www.thecityflea.com/ ). There are some new restaurants and shops in the vicinity as well in the Gateway Quarter (http://www.otrgateway.com/) - which isn't much more than a small strip (but its a start!).

. . . and while you are there, check out Findlay Market. Its not particularly impressive unless you are into sausage but there are several shops and some restaurants along the surrounding streets.
