It was a day for families - kids, parents, babies in strollers, even a few dogs, all intent on finishing the race. On a blustery, and sometimes rainy day in May, Necco joined forces with the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce at the 2014 Summer Celebration and OTR 5K to host the Kids' Dash across the Civic Lawn at Washington Park. Before kids raced across the grass they were welcomed at the Necco booth to create Maker inspired crafts like DIY stickers and signs. They were also treated to face painting and a fun facts information.
Historic Over-the-Rhine's Music Hall was the backdrop for runners and families as they stayed to enjoy an afternoon of live music, the City Flea, a fine arts show, and plenty of food and beverages.
Sights and sounds of the day were captured on film in our video recap found below.
We hope to see you and the kiddos at Washington Park again soon! http://washingtonpark.org
