Little Amal

The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra hosted a traveling festival featuring a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl named Little Amal. Her journey across the US celebrates refugees, immigrants, displaced people and the communities that welcome them.

I tried to meet up with the Wave Pool contingency but the banks of the Ohio was a bit of a madhouse of folks with wagons lining up for free snack samples for a corporate event.

That aside, the weather was perfect and the vibe was extra good.
