2012 Running of the Wieners.

At noon, we went to watch the Running of the Wieners on Fountain Square. It's been the
kickoff event to Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati for the last six years. And it's one of my faves.

It's such a fun afternoon. Great way to kickoff one of the most fun weekends of year
in downtown Cincinnati, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati!

Ha. I've noticed that I've habitually misspelled Wieners as Weiners. Oops.
That's my bad. :)
