Flying Fish and Wine Lovers This Weekend at Fountain Square

Posted on May 7, 2015 by jrudemiller

CINCINNATI (Thursday, May 7, 2015) – The CAI Insurance Fish Toss returns to Fountain Square tomorrow, May 8, at noon. When the whistle blows, teams of four will have sixty seconds to toss whole, raw fish from person to person down a fifty-foot course. The group that gets the most fish all the way down the line will win a gift card, a trophy, and serious bragging rights.

Online team registration is still open at Teams may also register on-site the day of the event. Special thanks to our sponsors, CAI Insurance, McCormick & Schmick’s, Fox Sports Ohio and The New 94.9.

But wait! That’s not all…

The fun continues later that evening with the start of Wine Maker’s Live! on Fountain Square! This two-day tasting event features offerings from the nation’s top selling wine brands and live entertainment from talented local acts like The Cincy Brass and The Almighty Get Down.
