CINCINNATI — Hamilton County and the City of Cincinnati are celebrating the Bengals trip to the Super Bowl with events this week.

Events are at Fountain Square, Findlay Market, Newport on the Levee and The Banks. There was a pep rally Monday night at Paul Brown Stadium.

“The DORA was set up for this very kind of event,” Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus said at a meeting held by county and city officials on Monday morning.

Cincinnati leaders have discussed possible parade routes if the team wins Super Bowl LVI, as well as crowd control, law enforcement and other staff.

“This is an incredible opportunity to tell the world what the Cincinnati region is all about,” Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval said.
