Creative Placemaking: Festivals, Murals, and Councils

#CincyStreetFoodFest

...was a success! Thank you to all of our partners, especially Woodforest Bank, for making this festival one of the best ones yet. At our 6th annual festival, we heard live music from The Tillers, Native Sun, and Kim Taylor (you can see their profiles on one of our homepage posts), and tasted food from Cincinnati food trucks and MORTAR Cincinnati food entrepreneurs. We've got more pictures up on our Facebook, so check us out @walnuthills !
