The immersive BLINK art and light festival is getting ready to take over more than 30 blocks of downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky from Oct. 13-16.
And this year, there's even more to see — from an illuminated opening parade to a drone show to an Asian Night Market and the return of the Architects of Air inflatable luminarium and brand new animated murals.
“We’re so excited to share BLINK with the Cincinnati region,” Justin Brookhart, executive director of BLINK, said in the release. “The collaborations with so many artists and individuals within the community make BLINK truly a nowhere else experience.”

Local arts nonprofit ArtsWave, which helps produce BLINK, has also released its own walking tour of the fest.
"The guided smartphone walking tour features 10 stops on a 1.5-mile loop, which you can do at your own pace anytime during the festival," reads a release. "Each stop offers an immersive experience, curated by the artist, including video introductions, tours of the artists' studios, in-progress sketches and photos, artwork installation videos and biographies."
ArtsWave's BLINK tours are available at givebutter.com/BLINKtour for a $10 donation and can be accessed at any point during BLINK. Proceeds benefit ArtsWave.
