Have you heard of District A?  We hadn't either, but you're going to hear more and more about it!  Because it is more than an arts district, it is an arts collaborative, a clearinghouse, and a catalyst to strengthen the sense of community and spur economic development along the Montgomery Road Corridor that connects Pleasant Ridge and Kennedy Heights in Cincinnati.  The Community Councils of these neighborhoods envision an even more diverse and vibrant community...with the arts at the core. 

On October 10th they are sponsoring a Street Festival along Montgomery Road, starting at Losantiville Avenue in Pleasant Ridge and going to Kennedy Avenue in Kennedy Heights.  There will be everything from performing arts and music to an art show and sale to hands-on community art.  The festival runs from Noon to 7PM.

You can enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides from 1-4 pm.  Soapbox cars and classic cars will both be featured. An outdoor stage will be erected in Pleasant Ridge with different acts throughout the day.  The local branch of the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library is sponsoring jazz pianist, Phil DeGreg and family art to enjoy.

Arts events will be held in Kennedy Heights at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, ballet tech cincinnati, and the Green Corner Studio and Marketplace.

Plus local restaurants will have specialties for that day and other booths will be set up.  According to the news release I got, "Pleasant Ridge Chili will be open till you smell what's baking at Ridge Donut Shop."
