Top 5 Winter Activities in Cincinnati this Weekend

So, the mild weather’s been great and all, but we want winter back. The warm mittens and hats, cold air — and maybe some snow? We are doing all sorts of snow dances right now, as this looks to be a pretty fantastic winter weekend in Cincinnati!

To celebrate, we selected our top 5 winter activities in Cincinnati this weekend — plus an extra one that’s fun (and fun is good!):
Penguin Days at the Cincinnati Zoo

Green Eggs and Ham

Saturday, Jan. 29 at 10:30 a.m. at The Taft
If there’s one thing we know, it’s that Dr. Seuss would have absolutely loved Lollipops concerts. Because these family oriented Cincinnati Pops concerts are fun – and fun is good! So combine the whimsical, upbeat Lollipops with the whimsical, upbeat Dr. Seuss? Magic. This month’s Lollipops show, Green Eggs and Ham, promises to be a delightful morning filled with lively music, interactive, kid friendly activities and the skilled conducting of Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra newcomer Keitaro Harada.
