Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Spring



  1. Every spring, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden transforms into a floral oasis. Thursday evenings throughout the month of April, the zoo offers free admission after 5 p.m. for their Tunes & Blooms series, which is a prime opportunity to hear some live music and see some magnificent foliage. The final concert in the series is this Thursday featuring the Cliftones. April 26, 6-8:30 p.m., 3400 W. Vine St.,  Clifton, (513) 281-4700,
  2. Celebrate the warmer temps at Spring Fest in the Woods. Enjoy wild edible cooking demonstrations, craft and food vendors, animals, music, face painting—need we go on? April 28, 11 a.m.–2 p.m., Burnet Woods, 3251 Brookline Ave., Clifton
  3. There are still ways to welcome spring even when April showers threaten to bust up the party. Visit the Taft Museum of Art to see Eternal Blooms: Chinese Painted Enamels on Copper, and explore pristine examples of a centuries-old painting technique on everyday household objects like dishware and boxes. Through June 24, 316 Pike St., downtown, (513) 241-0343,
  4. Get out and get moving at Workout on the Green at Washington Park. A variety of free classes, led by licensed instructors, are held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings throughout the spring and summer. Enjoy one of the city’s best urban parks while burning through that post-work slump. Various dates and times, 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine,
  5. Transport yourself to a tropical vacation at the Krohn Conservatory’s The Butterflies of Madagascar show. See the various flora and fauna of the region, along with the star attractions: African butterflies fluttering freely throughout the exhibition.
