Your Weekend To Do List: 7/19-7/21

Sawyer Point turns 25 this weekend, celebrating with a big birthday bash Saturday. The party will feature live music, food and beer, a kids entertainment area with Cincinnati Circus and inflatable rides and all the other playgrounds and park features Sawyer Point has to offer. The Sawyer Point Rockin' Birthday Bash runs noon-10 p.m. Saturday and admission is $3. Cincinnati Opera closes its summer season with Aida, Giuseppe Verdi's grand opera about an Ethiopian princess mixed up in an epic love triangle. Aida is onstage Saturday at Music Hall and continues next week. Find tickets and more info here.  Considering how much time most of us spend typing — on a computer at work or school, on a phone texting friends — the average kid today probably types faster than a professional secretary 50 years ago. Think you’ve got the fastest fingers in the city? Test ‘em out in the Cincy Typing Challenge. Typists and texters will compete in the qualifying round Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Cincinnati Museum Center. Finals are July 25 and the grand prize is $500, so register now, as same-day registration is limited. Let your Francophile flag fly Saturday at Montgomery’s annual Bastille Day celebration. Montgomery’s sister city is Neuilly-Plaisance, France and for 24 years the city celebrates this relationship with food, beer and wine, kids activities and lots of live entertainment. The free fête is noon-11 p.m. Saturday along Montgomery Road between Remington and Cooper roads. Bonne Bastille!Butler County, Warren County and Kenton County all host their respective fairs this weekend. Rides, games, animals and tractor pulls abound!For more art openings, theater shows, summer festivals and other stuff to do this weekend, check out our To Do picks and full calendar.

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 12, 2013
One intriguing opera in a new venue plus three warhorses equals Cincinnati Opera’s summer season. Factor in casts featuring many of opera’s most exciting and acclaimed young singers, along with young directors and acclaimed conductors, and the formula may come up a winner.
