The Ultimate Summer Bucket List 2017 {with Challenge}

Thank you to our friends at 3CDC (Washington Park, Memorial Hall, Fountain Square) for sponsoring our 2017 Summer Bucket List and for providing Cincinnati families with amazing parks,events, and revitalization efforts that honor the history and culture of Cincinnati. This year, 3CDC is partnering with the city of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Park Board to create Zeigler Park in OTR complete with a fabulous pool, just in time for summer (opens June 10th)! Family summer memberships range from $70-$350 and there is a very reasonable daily rate option (only $2-$4 depending on age).



This year’s bucket list offers 60 ideas to keep you busy this summer. There is something for every budget, interest and age. We know you are going to want to dive right in to all of these fun ideas, but before you get started, we want to issue a challenge.

This year we are extending an official CMB Summer Bucket List Challenge. It’s simple to play.

  1. Click on the picture below for your printable challenge.
  2. Complete the 5 activities on the challenge and document the fact that you did with a photograph. (When you go tech free, you can take the picture the day after!)
  3. Post all 5 pictures to Instagram or Facebook, using the hashtags #CMBbucketlist17 (tag us too if you want!)
  4. After all 5 pictures are posted, email us at [email protected] so we can verify your completed challenge.

This contest will run from now through August 20th.

One winner will receive a $50 VISA gift card.
