It all gets started with a light parade tonight down Vine Street through downtown Cincinnati to The Banks. This week marks the return of BLINK to the TriState and this years event is much larger than the original two years ago. This time organizers are expecting 1.5 million visitors over the four nights that it takes place. BLINK includes 100 light installations covering 30 blocks in downtown Cincinnati and Over the Rhine as well as Covington. One of the highlights this year is sure to be the illumination of the Roebling Suspension Bridge connecting the two cities.
Organizers of BLINK are encouraging people to take advantage of the Metro park and ride locations to come downtown because of the large crowds. Use of the Cincinnati Bell Connector will be free during the event each night.
