The 3rd annual Light Up Over-the-Rhine (Light Up OTR) is back again, here to celebrate the community and its new developments, and the restaurants and storefronts that contribute to our neighborhood's vibrant culture.
Presented by Agar and Peanut Butter & Jelly Co. (PB&J), both proud supporters of everything Cincinnati, Light Up OTR will once again gather progressive minds - and community supporters
This year set in the newly renovated Washington Park, Light UP OTR will expand the footprint of previous year’s celebrations, with luminaries that will spill onto Elm St., Race St., and go as far as Main St. The warm glow will symbolize safety, unity, and the coming of the holiday season.
A 30-foot tree will be mounted as a permanent holiday fixture at Washington Park.
Light Up OTR will benefit the Freestore Foodbank, where those wishing to sponsor a cart (not mandatory) can do so here: http://lightupotr2012.eventbrite.com/
The afterparty held at Japp's, will feature Framester Photo Booth, and chill fun, known well by residents of OTR.
