Party to greet Peace Bell today

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The 33-ton World Peace Bell will get a rousing welcome, complete with music, flags and hot-air balloons, when it arrives today at the Cincinnati riverfront.

  What: World Peace Bell arrival.
  When: 1 p.m.-9 p.m. today.
  Where: Serpentine Wall.
  Admission: Free.
  Parking: Lots and garages near the park.
        The bell, which left New Orleans July 5 on a barge lashed to the Belle of Cincinnati, arrived at the BB Riverboats dock in Covington early Saturday. But it will be presented to the community today at 2 p.m., when it is brought upstream by the Belle.
  It is expected to go on permanent display sometime this fall at Fifth and York streets in Newport.
  The party, along the Serpentine Wall at Yeatman's Cove, will last from 1-9 p.m., rain or shine. In addition to music and entertainment, visitors will be able to see and touch the bell.
