CINCINNATI -- Did you realize that May 13, written in shorthand, includes the same numbers as the Cincinnati area code? So, happy 513 Day!

Seriously, this is really a thing. And in honor of 513 Day, we’re celebrating the Greater Cincinnati region. (Yes, that means you, too, Northern Kentucky. Unfortunately, there’s no 59th day of August to celebrate as 859 Day.)

What do you love about Cincinnati? How are you celebrating 513 Day? Let us know by tweeting us @WCPO with the hashtag #513Day.

And in case you’ve missed them, here's a look back at some of our popular quizzes, stories and other features that spotlight aspects of Cincinnati’s rich past and thriving present.
