Experience Columbus Days is October 5 to 8, 2012

The Columbus Day weekend in Columbus, Ohio has been Experience Columbus Days for several years…  this year, the 200th Birthday of Columbus, Ohio is no different. Or maybe 2012 is different.

There are things going on lots of things coincide with Experience Columbus Days, the Columbus Day weekend in Columbus, Ohio in 2012.

TEDx Columbus 2012 is Friday.  No ticket for TEDx Columbus 2012?  View the 2012 TEDx Columbus talks at Studio 35 in Clintonville for FREE.

Love a Parade?

A hint for anyone visiting Columbus this weekend: There is no downtown Columbus parade on Columbus Day.   Many people who work in downtown Columbus are off on Monday.  Need a parade to make your weekend complete?  Go to the Columbus Italian Festival on Sunday (or Friday, Saturday, Sunday.)   The Columbus Italian Parade  is  Sunday, October 7th, 2012  at 2:00 p.m. according to the Columbus Italian Festival site (link below.)   Dom Tiberi of Channel 10 is the Grand Marshall of the 2012 Columbus Italian Festival.

The Columbus Italian Festival in Italian Village is one of my favorite things to do the first weekend in October.  Columbus Italian Festival is  October 5 to 7, 2012.

According to the ExperienceColumbUS.com site the hours of the Columbus Italian Festival are:

“Friday 5-11 p.m. Saturday noon-11 p.m. Sunday 11 a.m.-8 p.m.”

The Columbus Italian Festival is a bargain, again according to ExperienceColumbUS.com admission for adults is only $5 and children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult.  The Columbus Italian Festival is at St. John the Baptist, Italian Catholic Church at  720 Hamlet St., Columbus, Ohio 43215.

The casino on the west-side of Columbus is opening …  Columbus Day 2012 Monday, October 8, 2012.  Like it or not the casino opening  is a historic event for Columbus, Ohio.

Be sure to visit the Experience Columbus Days link on the ExperienceColumbus.com site  for the discount flyer for places like the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, COSI, Franklin Park Conservatory, the Santa Maria and many, many more.
