It's no secret that the Northside
neighborhood throws an Independence Day party like nobody’s business.
Folks flock from all over the Cincinnati area to spend some time in the
city’s hub of all things hip for two full days packed with live music,
local food, a family-friendly carnival and, of course, the annual Fourth
of July parade. What most spectators and marchers might
not know? They’re carrying on a 158-year-old tradition that dates back
to the days when Central Parkway was underwater.
