Changes planned for upcoming special events in Cincinnati

You can expect to see plenty of police officers and more volunteers at special events in and around downtown following several incidents at this year's Taste of Cincinnati.  

Assistant Police Chief James Whalen recounted those activities Monday during a city council committee meeting.

"Primarily youth 14 to probably 23-year-old people that were moving up out of the event venue," Whalen said.  "Up into the Central Business District, up in to Over-the-Rhine and to a smaller extent over into the Westend, and engaging in disorderly behavior, sometimes violent behavior."

If you were at Taste of Cincinnati last weekend and thought it seemed busier than usual, you were right.  Lance Barry with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber said the final estimate for the three-day event is in, and it's a record.

"We are projecting our numbers for the weekend to be right around 550,000," said Barry.  " We were expecting them to be right around a half-million at 500,000, but we're now very easily projecting, comfortably, a 10-percent increase from even where we thought we'd be for the weekend."

Five blocks of Fifth Street in downtown Cincinnati will turn into what's billed as the nation's longest running culinary arts festival this weekend.   The Taste of Cincinnati runs tomorrow through Memorial Day.  Lance Barry with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber said there will be about 40 restaurants at the event, and 8 food trucks.

"That's actually a new addition with the Food Truck Alley," said Barry.  "Certainly the food trucks have taken off all over the country, including Cincinnati, so we wanted to incorporate them."
