Fall is almost here, and the weather in Cincinnati is looking incredibly comfortable this weekend — practically perfect for doing something outside.
And to encourage locals to head outdoors, the 19th-annual Great Outdoor Weekend is offering more than 100 free activities across area parks, rivers, trails and more.
Presented by regional sustainability alliance Green Umbrella and partner organizations, adults and kids alike can expect to partake in events ranging from outdoor concerts to free pedal boat rentals at Winton Woods harbor and a bunny meet-and-greet at Gorman Heritage Farm to a birding hike at William Harbin Park.
The weekend will kick off on Sept. 23 with a “Campfire on the Bluff” hosted by Cincinnati Parks where anyone is welcome to join and enjoy storytelling at the Austin E. Knowlton campfire area at the California Woods Nature Preserve.
Great Outdoor Weekend takes place Sept. 24 and 25. All events are free. For more info, visit greatoutdoorweekend.org.
