Get out of the house with these free, family-friendly eventsSam Cioffi Although everyone is still trying to get back on track this summer, many businesses and organizations are looking for creative ways to keep their communities involved. If you’re looking to finally get out of the house in the next few weeks, these three outdoor events might provide you with a needed break from quarantine.
Yoga on the Green with Findlay Yoga
In a few weeks, yoga will be hosted in Washington Park by Findlay Yoga, a studio with its main location near Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine. The event is currently awaiting final approval, but it’s tentatively scheduled for July 7. In the meantime, Findlay Yoga offers virtual classes through its website, with one free class offered if you sign up for its newsletter.
Rotating Classes with the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati
The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati will also offer outdoor classes to the community this summer at Washington Park, tentatively scheduled to start July 1. In the past, a variety of classes have been brought to the park, such as yoga, barre and Zumba. For those looking for a workout right now, though, the YMCA’s many locations, including Central Parkway, are now open with updated hours.
Fishing Derby at Pyramid Hill
Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum, located in Hamilton, is hosting its annual Father’s Day weekend Fishing Derby June 20. This is a catch-and-release fishing contest for kids, but anyone can attend, free of charge. The contest awards prizes, to three different age categories, for the most fish caught as well as the largest fish. Participants must bring their own fishing gear and the event goes from 10 a.m.-noon, with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m.
