Cincinnati Got Lit For BLINK, Here’s Everything We Saw


BLINK is a four-night light and art experience spanning 30 city blocks through Over-the-Rhine, downtown and, new this year, across an illuminated Roebling Bridge into Covington. It is returning to the area by popular demand after the event’s inaugural event in 2017.

Now in its second run, BLINK kicked off Thursday, Oct. 10 at dusk with a 3,200-participant-led parade down Vine Street. Through Sunday, Oct. 13, the cityscape will be transformed by way of large-scale new murals, light installations, interactive sculptures, performance art, live entertainment and projection mapping — a technique that projects computer-programmed light, color and animations across three-dimensional surfaces.

BLINK runs 7-11 p.m. nightly. Check in throughout the weekend — we'll be adding more photos.
