Bockfest is this weekend. Hey it's Rob.
Organizers of Bockfest says its bigger and better than ever. If you're like me, and never been here's the deal. It starts tomorrow with the Bockfest parade which begins at Arnold's downtown. It's frequently referred to as Cincinnati's "most bohemian" parade. The parade is led by a wooden goat. Bock BTW means got in German.
The parade ends at Bockfest Hall. That's where Franciscan Monks bless and tap a ceremonial keg of Bock beer.
There is also a home brewer's competition prohibition resistance and Over-the-Rhine historic church tours and live music throughout the weekend. You can also try Schoeling Bock. It is being released for the first time in 20 years.
