Most cities take pride in their past, preserving their historic triumphs and unusual claims to fame. The more macabre facets of municipal history, however, can take some digging to uncover. American Legacy Tours' Queen City is Haunted walking tours take the work out of supernatural explorations of Cincinnati. During each walk, expert guides expound on the murders and deaths of yesteryear, taking their charges through haunted buildings, spooky burial grounds, and the spot where they finally buried their dream of dancing. Historical episodes of interest include Cincinnati's Murder College, the phantoms that infest Music Hall, and the tale of the Tri-State area's most prolific killer.
Twice each year for more than a decade, Bridalrama has brought brides and grooms together with more than 100 of Cincinnati's best wedding-planning professionals for a one-stop networking event. Couples peruse a showroom at the Duke Energy Convention Center full of booths, each dedicated to a different facet of creating a dream wedding. They might hobnob with gown designers, sample cake selections offered by local bakeries, and test the skills of salons by purposefully getting gum stuck in their hair. Amid all the matrimonial hubbub, two fashion shows take place at each event to showcase the latest in gown design.
