People in Cincinnati may see a bicycle with a torch traveling through their neighborhood Friday and Saturday.  It's part of a relay for the opening ceremony Saturday night for the Cincinnati Neighborhood Games.

The Cincinnati Neighborhood Games held its first competition in 2016 as a way to bring the city’s 52 neighborhoods together for fun and friendship. The Games featured a variety of events, including hula-hoop endurance, stein holding and chess. And much like the Olympics, participants paraded in with their neighborhood flags for opening and closing ceremonies.
