Revelers will make their way to the real meat of the event, where beer, food and live music will commence. Yes, Friday is the day of tradition. However, the rest of the weekend is full of tours, history and day drinking, so don’t destroy yourself in one night! The parade starts at 5 p.m. at Arnold’s, 210 E. Eighth St. The festival afterward occurs at the Christian Moerlein Event Hall, 1619 Moore St., Over-the-Rhine. Friday through Sunday. All events and venues can be found at bockfest.com.
