Halloween has came and went, and all of us at the Friends of Grant Park couldn't be happier about the results. We had a great community turnout despite freezing temperatures, and gave out TWICE the candy compared to 2018!


Special thanks to the Model Group, Spruce Nail Shop, and Queen City Radio for providing the hayride cart, and 3CDC for the CAN-AM that pulled it!



The hayride was a massive success, making several journeys to and from Findlay Market and providing riders with endless entertainment along the way.


Special thanks to FC Cincinnati for sending us Gary the mascot! Kids loved having the big furry mascot around, and he made a great impression.



Providing the greater Cincinnati area with important safety updates is an absolutely crucial task, and Local 12 is always on scene to report.

Special thanks to Local 12 for the media coverage.



Making an impact on the northern Over-The-Rhine community has never been more important than now with the high rate of local neighborhood violence, and on Halloween, we all did our part. None of this event would be possible without our supporters, and we cannot thank all of our volunteers and sponsors enough!

We aim to make this park something special in Cincinnati, and it started with building a stronger web presence. Our new website showcases the function and beauty of Grant Park, and highlights potential for increased use.


As we gain increased sponsorship and add more amenities to the park, expect increased exposure and even more exciting community events.
