When talking about Hyde Park activities...give a huge "Bravo!" to this group of young Cincinnatians who both fundraise and then give back to the community.  In the next month, they're going to be busy.

June 27 - Hyde Park Blast- an entire day of activities around the Square, including a 4 mile walk/run, bicycle races, Taste of Hyde Park (running from noon to 10PM), plus entertainment from the Faux Frenchmen and The Rusty Griswolds until midnight.

July 4 - Give Back Cincinnati takes over the Ault Park Fireworks, starting with the Kids Bike Parade at 10am and continuing through Mambo Diablo and Never 7 playing until the Fireworks.  Bring a blanket and a picnic.  It will be a blast!

July 18 - Gamble-Nippert YMCA will host the Kids Olympics and Give Back Cincinnati will provide the volunteers to do crafts, relay races, kickball and other fun activities with your children.  You must register in advance so visit their website, www.givebackcincinnati.org.
