Cincinnati Navy Week 2011 Underway

We're pro-Navy here since Bill's a 1985 Annapolis grad and served six years with surface warfare ships!  And Cincinnati has a fairly unique opportunity to get a closer look at the Navy.....sorry, no warships or submarines will be docking on the Ohio River for Navy Week August 28th - September 4th, but they're sending the best they can for our location!

Each year the Navy visits about 20 cities to put on a Navy Week demonstration, and this year Cincinnati made the list!  They last did this in 2007, and the Navy Week events are already haze gray and underway!  (inside joke for the Navy Vets!) 

You might have already spotted some sailors in the area starting August 28th as they've been making regular appearances in the Cincinnati area! There's already a Centennial of Naval Aviation display at the Cincinnati Museum Center!  Additionally, there will be appearances by the Navy Leap Frogs (Navy SEALs and SWCC commandos), a simulator, Navy band Cruisers and more!  And none of the events will cost you anything, but if you want to enlist in the Navy they'll probably have the paperwork ready for you! :)

Here's a summary overview of what Navy Weeks are about (sorry, no Blue Angels visit this time!)

Here are the major events over the next few days:

Navy simulator and video game display at Cincinnati Museum Center (11 a.m.- 5 p.m.)
Navy Divers at Newport Aquarium (11 a.m.- noon & 1 - 2 p.m.)
Navy Day with the Cincinnati Reds!  12-12:30   The Leap Frogs jump into Great American Ball Park
Navy band Cruisers performs at Fort Thomas, Kentucky's Tower Park Amphitheater starting at 7 p.m.

Navy Divers at Newport Aquarium, same time as Thursday
The Leap Frogs jump at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy High School football game

The Leap Frogs jump at Cincinnati Museum Center at 10:30 a.m., then they head to Coney Island for jumps from 2:30 to 4 p.m.!
Navy simulator at Coney Island 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Navy Divers at Newport Aquarium, same times as befoe AND 3-4 p.m.
Findlay Market, Navy Cooking Demo noon - 2 p.m. (hey, some of these guys are actually REALLY good!)
Hometown Sailors perform educational programs at Cincinnati Museum Center 1-4 p.m. (paper aviation, buoyancy and other cool stuff!)
Cruisers perform 2-3 p.m. at Fountain Square

Navy Divers run the same schedule as Saturday at Newport Aquarium
Navy simulator at Riverfest kids area noon-8 p.m.
Cruisers perform at Riverfest Yeatman's Cove Park stage
The Leap Frogs jump at Riverfest 2-3 p.m. and again at 8-8:30 just before the fireworks!

So short of heading to one of the coasts and seeing the Navy up close and personal, this will be one of the best opportunities for you to get a better idea of what today's Navy is all about!

We hope you enjoy the activities!

This sounds like a wonderful event!  But I have to say, not too sure about that Navy cooking.  With a Dad & son who both served in the Navy I've heard some stories!

Tish, I'm not going to say they're all great, but for one of my midshipman cruises I was on SSN663 Hammerhead.  She won best small boat category cooking the year before, and her cooks kicked butt!  Great omelettes and apple fritters most mornings!  Bill

Peter & Linda, They're quite busy aren't they?  Especially the Leap Frogs, that is a LOT of jumps this week!

Deb, They're doing everything they can short of running a warship up the Ohio River for tours :)

Bliz; It looks like the Navy is everywhere this week. I should stay away as I would sign papers and then Liz would have to do my Opens:)

Steve, St. Cloud is a long way for us to go just to hope someone will show up at the Opens!  And besides, not sure MN reciprocates agency with Ohio! :)

My dad was a Merchant Marine way back in the 50's...I think he FED the Navy boys....  Sounds like a great and Patriotic Localism event for the folks of Cincinnati and Warren County to attend!

Cara, Those Merchant Marines spend more time at sea than us Navy folks!  My longest stretch away from home was 6 months, but other than than, just a few weeks at a time :)
