It’s been a long work week and you’re ready for some fun.  So are you wondering what is going on “Out and About” in the Tri-State this weekend?

Well, here you go with some ideas to give you a more fun filled weekend.

The 2015 Cincinnati Music Festival at the Paul Brown Stadium, runs Friday and Saturday night.  This is two days of R & B with a star studded line up like Maxwell, Jennifer Hudson, and Jill Scott. Tickets are still available for both shows.

If R&B isn’t your scene, some other concerts on Friday evening: Seth MacFarlane and the Cincinnati Pops at Riverbend; Joan Jett and the Blackhearts at the Lawrenceburg Event Center, or check out Grace Potter is singing at the Taft, and Machine Gun Kelly at Bogarts.  You can get tickets at Ticketmaster.

Now for the family the Cincinnati Museum Center is offering FREE admission from 4 to 8 p.m. that is for Friday only.

You have all weekend to take the entire family to the Greater Anderson Days, it runs Friday through Sunday, with live music from local bands, games,
rides, food and fireworks and that is all FREE.

There are also a number of County Fairs going on around the Tri-State, this is the last weekend of the Warren County Fair it ends Saturday.  But. The Butler and Clermont County Fairs, both begin this weekend and run through next weekend August 1st.  There is always something for everyone at the county fairs. 

Downtown this weekend, you could take a bicycle tour in OTR on Saturday or Sunday.  On Saturday you could hope over to Washington Park and check out the CityFlea. This is an Urban flea market Downtown from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

Saturday at noon, you have Harleys Against Heroin in Amelia, ending with food, fun, drinks and fireworks. 

On Sunday, put on your running shoes for the 5K Run and Walk “Honoring Our Heroes” the run is from 9am to noon at the Kroger Company 1014 Vine St. Downtown. 

Maybe antiquing is more up your alley, you could check out the Mainstrasse Village Bazaar, on MainStrasse’s Promenade from 9 a.m. to  3p.m. Sunday at Mainstrasse in Covington.
