My wife & I were here with friends for an event called Luminocity. The event which began at 8:30 in the evening featured performances by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, The Cincinnati Ballet's second company, the Cincinnati Opera, and young dancers and musicians from a couple of different programs. The evening was capped off with a laser light show accompanied by the Symphony, projected on the facade of historic Music Hall which is located directly across from the park. The entertainment was all excellent. The setting is very pretty.
There were food booths, and craft booths next to the event area, in which to pass some time before the performance.
But, it is a hassle to have to arrive four or five hours before the performance in order to ensure a place to sit. Admission was limited by distribution of tickets in advance of the event. The tickets were free; but limited in number. All seating was "carry your own" (in other words, bring your own lawn chair). Twelve thousand people with lawn chairs, vying for the best vantage point is not great fun (at least, for me). If anyone has a good idea on a better way to conduct this type of event, please pass that info along to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
For me, it was worth doing once. But, I can't say that I would be willing to invest that much of my time to see a similar performance again.
