We’ve come to the end of July, which means fall is just around the corner. But this weekend, we’re all in on summer, and are so excited for the fun that’s ahead. If you’re into fashion, Cincinnati Fashion Night at Krohn Conservatory is the party of the summer; for families, nothing beats a good festival or fair, and we think the Ohio State Fair is absolutely worth a trip this weekend! So let’s make it a fantastic summer weekend, and live it up at one of these events in Cincinnati this weekend.
