Northern Kentucky celebrates the people and heritages of our region with the inaugural NKY International Festival on Saturday, March 14. A joint presentation by Boone County Schools, the Rotary Clubs of Northern Kentucky, and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the event will feature international cuisine, entertainment, shopping, and information booths. Darren Wurz from the Covington Rotary Club joins Anne Arenstein in the studio for a conversation about this first-year event.

The Northern Kentucky Convention Center turns 20 this year and a study will look at whether it needs to be bigger. Eric Summe with the Convention and Visitors Bureau says there's been the assumption an expansion is needed, but the study will say definitively. He says it will also look at how big of an expansion would be needed.

The 2014 Cincinnati Comicon returns to The Northern Kentucky Convention Center for another weekend of creative craziness.

Many amazing guests will be in attendance, including artists and creators from the world of comic books, graphic novels and illustration.  Some featured guests include Kelley Jones [Batman, Sandman], Hilary Barta [Spongebob, The Simpsons], Tony Millionaire [Maakies, Sock Monkey, God Hates Cartoons], Ryan Stegman [Amazing Spider-Man, Fantastic Four] and Tony Moore [The Walking Dead].

The Cincinnati Comicon will also showcase some amazing Lego constructions, that will impress kids of all ages.

To get better perspective on the world of a comic book creator, I met with Bruce Worden [Woodstalk, Good Night Keith Moon] and William Grapes [Girls of Ninja High School, Fyre Dragon].
