Ah, but mere descriptions cannot do this event justice. These outrageously creative designs must be seen to be believed as they careen through historic Eden Park. The goal? Get these wacky contraptions down the course the fastest and in one piece. Expect some showboating too, as teams are judged on showmanship as well as speed and creativity. Sixty teams are scheduled to participate in this year's event, and really, you aren't likely to get any better entertainment for free anywhere else in the city on Saturday, so get on over to Mount Adams and find yourself a choice spot to witness the spectacle. … [Read more...] about Top 5 Cincinnati events this weekend, Sept. 7-9.
