Downtown and NKY
BLINK returns to downtown Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and surrounding neighborhoods from Thursday October 10 through Sunday October 13.
Along with many creative light displays on murals around our downtown neighborhoods and OTR, Architects of Air presents the world premiere of its luminarium, "Dodecalis" ("dough-deck-alice"). The Architects of Air luminarium experience is ticketed, but the vast majority of BLINK is free and open.
The Roebling suspension bridge connecting Covington and Downtown will be lit as well, making it an even more iconic part of our city. Don't miss BLINK weekend!
