Halloween is over, which means it is finally time for holiday-lovers to emerge from hibernation.
It also means that the end-of-the-year shopping season has begun, and the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market is coming out strong with a three-day event.
You can grab a group of friends and switch back and forth between shopping the 350-plus boutiques at the show and the much-appreciated wine lounge.
New this year: wider aisles, a larger show room and longer hours. VIP shopping and early entry happen 8 a.m.-11 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
11 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. $8 online; $10 at the door. Duke Energy Convention, 525 Elm St., Downtown, cincinnatiholidaymarket.com.
