Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week began after the murder of DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena who was kidnapped and tortured in 1985. They also kidnapped his pilot Alfredo Zavala-Avelar. Camarena had been working undercover for 4 years in Guadalajara, Mexico. His works led to the discovery of a multi-million dollar narcotics operation in Chihuahua, Mexico.

The creators of Blink were amazed at the turnout and the number of people that attended. Dan Reynolds described the experience as unbelievable. There was an estimated amount of 1 million people who came out to the show. Sitting buses were packed to the brim with people, shoulder to shoulder. An uber driver stated that over the span of the 16 years he’s been driving he’s never seen so many people downtown before. Blink got people out to explore places that they’ve never seen before and it was an overall celebration for Cincinnati.
