The annual, weekend-long beer festival Bockfest, in Over-the-Rhine, is back Friday, Feb. 28, kicking things off with a parade, followed by festivities that include a 5K run. All activities require some road closures throughout the weekend.
It’s growing very close to the serious running season, and there’s a new run on the horizon that’s part of a newly dubbed Christian Moerlein Beer Series and part of the ever-growing Flying Pig Marathonevents. The new Bockfest 5K will be part of the annual Over the Rhine beer festival. Iris Simpson Bush from the Flying Pig Marathon is in The Front Row with Betsy Ross to talk about all three stages of the Beer Series, some additions to the Flying Pig, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles for people of all ages.
