September Activities On My List

There are several events of interest in the Cincinnati area coming up in September.

This coming weekend is the final Cincinnati Rollergirls bout at the Cincinnati Gardens. It's an intra-league bout. Note that there is another event in October at Castle Skateland in Loveland.

On September 15th and 16th, Jim Dandy's Family BBQ in Sharonville is hosting the 2nd Annual Jim Dandy's BBQ Cookoff. The restaurant is owned by a guy I used to work with -- Jim of course. After leaving P&G, he followed his cooking passion full time and started a restaurant a couple years ago. Jim knows how to smoke ribs. We enjoy the food, but didn't see the 1st cookoff. Stop by if you're in the area.

On September 22nd and 23rd, the Blue Ash Airport is holding its annual Blue Ash Airport Days. It has become a large event for the airport. There are several good airshow performers that will be there. Of course you can see the airshow from many spots off the airport property. But there are things to see and do on the airport grounds, and all admission proceeds go to Children's Hospital. There is a car & motorcycle show on the grounds and a 5k run is planned too.

Although not in the immediate Cincinnati area, on September 29th and 30th the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends event is being held at Rickenbacker Field just South of Columbus. Besides a large group of P-51 Mustangs, there will be lots of other warbirds attending the event and an airshow including the US Air Force Thunderbirds. The Legends part of the event are the aviators who flew these planes. Check out the list of aviations legends that plan to attend. They've held these events before, but usually in Florida or some distance away. I'm going to have to drive over for this one.

Do you have other favorite September events coming up in the Cincinnati area?
