Big events mean busy weekend for Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

It will be a busy weekend in downtown Cincinnati. The Reds play host to their biggest rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals in afternoon games Saturday at 4 and Sunday at 2. The series began Friday night with the Reds beating the Cards 5-3. That still leaves Cincinnati in second place and two and a half games up on St. Louis.

The Bunbury Music Festival will feature 100 live performances on six stages throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove Saturday and Sunday. The name of the event comes from an Oscar Wilde play, "The Importance of Being Ernest" and means "to have a made up excuse to get out of doing something boring." YahooMusic named the Bunbury Music Festival as "one of the top 10 essential summer festivals" to attend along with Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot and Bonnaroo. Tickets are available on site for $93 (three-day pass) and $46 (one-day pass). Children 10 and under are admitted free with a paid adult admission.
