Consider Saturday Street Closings Before Your Friday Night Revel

I was reminded that on Saturday morning and afternoon, there will be a lot of streets closed downtown for the very long, but highly entertaining, St Patrick’s Day Parade. Of course, I was reminded in case anyone wants to attend the Wine Fest Auction and Luncheon at the Hilton. But you all know what I’m thinking. If you plan on ending up in a hotel on Friday night after the Grand Tastings, consider the street closings when parking. Since the parade also tends to last several hours, you also need to consider the street closings if you’re heading downtown for the afternoon Grand Tasting.

St Patrick's Day Parade, Cincinnati

Starting at 8:00am  Saturday, these streets will be closed :

  • Eggleston between Broadway and East 3rd St
  • Reedy between Broadway and Court St
  • All of Butler, Culvert, and Sentinel Streets

Starting at 10:30 am, the following additional streets will close:

  • 5th St from Sentinel to Plum St
  • Plum St from 5th to 3rd St
  • West 3rd from Plum to Central

Last year we just embraced the parade wholeheartedly. I recommend a huge breakfast at Hathaway’s, then cut under the parade and through the parking garage to end up topside on Fountain Square. Then you can just relax and enjoy the fun and occasional oddity of the parade.

You can join us on the Square again this year, as we meet up with the Hoperatives, MommyBits, and several other bloggers. We’d love to see you!
