For as long as I've lived in Cincy I've never seen seen the Riverfest fireworks in person. We always watch on TV to avoid the traffic, but that's gonna change this year. Tomorrow I'm headed down to the river to grab a spot and enjoy Cincinnati's signature event of the year with about a half a million other people. Its HUGE. For those who don't live anywhere in the tri-state area, click here to get an idea of what I'm talking about. An added bonus, 8KOunt, one of the bands that played at REZonate last week will be playing there. Last night they competed with another local band to see which band gets to headline the event. I've not heard if they won or not - I think the announcement comes later today, but either way they'll be playing. Its no small deal to be runner up in this event.

Hey and if you don't already know, Fred and Judy are probably pulling into the Rez about now with a load of winter coats, shoes, socks, etc for the kids in the village. They have access to the Pine Ridge blog so you can check out pics and read about their experience. I LOVE it when this stuff happens.

Its a good weekend again
