Hundreds of bras will be unveiled on Fountain Square and the public is invited to vote for their favorite from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. During that time, no cost mammograms will be provided and paid for through a grant from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. A fashion show takes place later in the evening, followed by an after party on the Square.

3. Northern Kentucky Wine Festival
Home to the first commercial vineyard in the United States, Kentucky was once producer of more than half the nation’s grape and wine output. Now, Kentucky is reclaiming its proud heritage and rebuilding its wine industry to take its place among the world’s best. There’s no need to travel to Napa Valley for a wine tasting when you have the hills of Kentucky in your backyard.
Party Town presents the seventh Annual Northern Kentucky Wine Festival at Mainstrasse Village. The celebration featuring Kentucky’s own wineries kicks off at 3 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m.

4. Comedian Pauly Shore performs in the Tri-State
In 2012, not too many folks greet Pauly Shore with a “what’s up bu-ddy?” While he’s proud of his past and the cult standing of films like "Bio-Dome," the original “dude comic” is always moving forward. His latest project, Pauly Shore’s Pauly-Tics, comes out on DVD on Election Day.
“It’s a cool special, I’m proud of it.” Mixing stand-up and interview footage, Shore talks to several politicians and pundits in Washington, which he then muses about onstage. He performs this weekend at the Funny Bone.

5. Cincinnati Psych Fest debuts this weekend
A new kind of music festival is making its debut this weekend in Cincinnati. The first Cincinnati Psych Fest will take place Saturday, Oct. 20 at Mayday, a popular watering hole and music venue for hipsters in the eclectic neighborhood of Northside.
The one-day event, which is inspired by the annual Austin Psych Fest, celebrates 60s Psychedelia and modern adaptations of the genre. (Sorry, no fortune telling or astrological charts at this festival).
The festival includes performances by local and out of town bands. And what would be a psych fest without a light show? Doctor Robert’s Ocular Odyssey‘s Psychedelic Light Show of Fort Wayne, Ind. will also be present.
