BLINK ® is best experienced on foot. Park the car, grab friends and family, and use our suggested self-guided walking routes to explore BLINK’s 30+ blocks of light, art, and wonder. All routes end in our Hospitality Areas where you can find seating, restrooms, food and beverage, entertainment, VIP tents and more. Don’t forget to pause to take in the wonderment and share using #BLINKCincinnati.

 

Interested in a guided tour? Join an ArtsWave to discover the stories behind the art through six unique guided tours by ArtsWave, the engine behind the region’s arts and the illuminator of BLINK.

Roebling Bridge and over the Ohio River into Cincinnati’s The Banks neighborhood. Along the way, you’ll stop at one sky-high mural, a singing bridge, installations inspired by the river, an ode to the Cincinnati Reds, and much more.

ROUTE TWO

Downtown Discoveries

The Downtown Discoveries route begins at Cincinnati’s historic Fountain Square and guides you to awe-inspiring and thought-provoking moments of art throughout Cincinnati’s main streets. Along the way, you’ll explore historic buildings transformed with light, the return of the see-saws, a battle of lights, and more.

ROUTE THREE

Wonderment in Over-the-Rhine

Wander through the streets and alleys of Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. This route will take you to a returning BLINK favorite (inflatable light sculpture Architects of Air), mesmerizing projections (including the vibrant mural art of Saya Wolfalk brought to life), several installations that invite you into the art (including an opportunity to barter!), and more. Still up for more after finishing the route? Continue back through the park and into the Findlay Market Neighborhood Zone using Pleasant Street to light the way.

Be sure to save some energy to dance under The World’s Largest Disco Ball, Ya’ll.
