Women Writing for (a) Change presents a night of laugh-out-loud ladies at Go Bananas tonight. Support programs for local women and girls while having a few laughs — ticket sales benefit the organization. Area comics performing include Hannah Bishop, Loraine Braun, Carla Britain, Celeste Brott, Ally Bruener, Kelly Collette, Teri Foltz and Shelly Iker. Check it out (because yes, chicks are funny, too) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
It must be Terrific Lady Day, because down on the river, the Northern Kentucky Chamber and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber present another special event for local ladies at B&B Riverboat Landing. Connecting Shore to Shore is a networking happy hour aimed to unite women from both sides of the river, running 5-7 p.m. tonight. Guests are asked to bring new or gently used accessories (shoes, handbags, scarves, jewelry) to donate to Dress for Success. Admission is $20, $15 for Chamber members and reservations should have been made in advance, but walk-ins are welcome.
More than 100 Norwood residents and business owners will fill the neighborhood for the Norwood Day Parade, stepping off at 7 p.m. today. The parade runs along Montgomery Road, from Ashland to Maple Avenue. This year’s parade theme is “Norwood: There’s No Place Like Home,” paying tribute not to Dorothy but to the local military personnel returning home from overseas. Bring a lawn chair (and probably an umbrella).
Ongoing events tonight include the Clermont County Fair, MOTR Pub’s Writer’s Night with Lucas of The Dukes Are Dead and American Roots on Fountain Square, featuring Shoot Out the Lights and Straw Boss.
