CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
The city of Cincinnati is working on its appearance to impress thousands of international visitors for the 2012 World Choir Games.
Marked as "The City That Sings," the group Keep Cincinnati Beautiful wants downtown to look as good as it sounds.
Nearly 80 volunteers from Cincinnati area Lowe's Home Improvement stores joined forces to prep, paint and add art to beautify the city.
"When Keep Cincinnati Beautiful reached out to us and said they needed help with the painting that was a perfect opportunity to us to show what we can do for the city and kind of give back to the community," says Western Hills Store Manager Fausto Fuentes.
The volunteers split up into groups to paint dozens of poles around downtown with a fresh coat of black paint and install an art project along Third Street and Broadway near US Bank Arena.
"I love the diversity of the colors and the fact that they're trying to bring art into basically the entrance point of Cincinnati," says volunteer Val Kemplin.
So far Keep Cincinnati Beautiful says volunteers have donated 1,500 hours of work to shine the city for the games which start in 13 days from Thursday.
"You can do the math, if you had to pay someone for that work that's thousands and thousands of dollars that we've been able to leverage," says KCB Volunteer Coordinator Brooke Romaniw.
The World Choir Games sound off July 4th-July 14th.
To properly welcome our guests for the World Choir Games, many Downtown streets will be swept and cleaned starting next week. All parked vehicles must be moved overnight so that the streets can be sweptMore>>
