One of the truest signs of spring in Cincinnati is the annual Krohn Conservatory Butterfly Show. This year, they feature Butterflies of the Philippines and the conservatory’s manager, Andrea Schepmann, talks with David Delegator about the history of the show, how the feature country is chosen, and what visitors will enjoy when they visit.

Another Polar Vortex is sweeping across the region forcing many indoors but there are still some adventurous souls braving the cold.

Nathan Cramer normally plays in-line hockey but earlier this year he invested in a pair of hockey skates.

"I got my own ice skates this year," said Cramer. "I bought them knowing it was going to get cold enough and there'd be some free ice to play on."

The Cincinnati Park Board has decided to cancel Saturday’s Balluminaria at Eden Park because of the forecast for high winds.  

Officials said in a release balloons like calmer wind speeds, in the single digits, especially for inflating in smaller areas such as Mirror Lake.  Wind speeds Saturday are predicted to be 20 plus miles per hour.  

The park board said it doesn't want to risk the safety of the balloonists, staff or guests.  

The event will not be rescheduled.
