Cincinnati: Tis the Season to be Dazzled Downtown
« on: December 10, 2006, 08:57:52 PM »
I took the family downtown on Saturday to enjoy the downtown festivities, and to introduce my relatively new nephew to the city!  We had a GREAT time and downtown was packed all around Fountain Square.  There were extremely long lines for ice skating on the square, the train display, pictures with Santa at Tower Place, and carriage rides.

Here are some of the pics (excuse the poor picture quality..was not my camera, and I don't know what happened):

We hit up the train display first and my nephew LOVED it!














Here he is loving the trains up:



Now back to Fountain Square and we thought we would watch the ice skaters instead of waiting in the incredibly long line:






Some more from Fountain Square:








I love this fish thing that they installed above the McSchmick's entrance:





Inside Tower Place:


with Santa:



This is in the Hilton Netherland lobby and it is a gingerbread display of some of the famous downtown bldgs:


It had been a long, cold day and it was time to go home:

I don't know if you find this to be good or bad, but I think they are fine....if trees are too big they can become a public safety issue (decreased visibility).  I would like them to be a little larger, but not too much, by the way....the whole outing once again reminded me why I love Cincinnati sooooo much!!!

Rando we must have been on the square at the same time.  ColDay, NatiJoe & I also stopped by the train display.  Good times in the Queen City.

Nice shots.
I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

What the heck is the Kroger building doing in all that?!?

Nice pics, although I'm dazzled by downtown year round.

^Its a Cincinnati institution, and I presume that is why they included it.
