Qualifiers for the 2018 Cincinnati Neighborhood Games take place in June and July.

The Cincinnati Neighborhood Games held its first competition in 2016 as a way to bring the city’s 52 neighborhoods together for fun and friendship. The Games featured a variety of events, including hula-hoop endurance, stein holding and chess. And much like the Olympics, participants paraded in with their neighborhood flags for opening and closing ceremonies.

The Neighborhood Games is currently looking for team captains as it prepares for this year’s competition. Joining us with a preview are the founder of the Games, Henry Frondorf, and President and Board Chair Brian Hiles.
