Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the festival and the parade are Artworks founding CEO and Artistic Director Tamara Harkavey; BLINK Future City Spectacular Parade Grand Marshal Jean-Robert de Cavel; and Hickory Wald Hospitality and BLINK Partner Andrew Salzbrun.

We're also joined by several BLINK artists. BLDG Refuge Lead Designer for the BLINK installation Becca Miller; Maria Finkelmeier of MASARY Studios; Forealism Tribe Performer Star Power; and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful Katie Davis Arts Program Co-Director Katie Davis.
