CINCINNATI - “American Ninja Warrior” will hold eight tapings along Second Street this weekend, but if you haven’t got tickets, you might be out of luck.

All of the free tickets for “Ninja” have been distributed, though you can put your name on a waiting list on the TV show’s webpage.

Four tapings are scheduled between 7:30 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Saturday, and four more are set between 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3:15 a.m. Sunday, according to the webpage.

A three-block stretch of Second Street between Elm and Walnut has been closed since May 18 to set up the obstacle course. The road will be reopened by 8 p.m. Monday, according to a release from the city. Race and Vine streets over Fort Washington Way are also closed.

Meanwhile, the public will also run an obstacle course this weekend with more than a half million people going to Second Street for “Taste of Cincinnati.” The popular food festival will cause the following road closures:

  • Fifth Street between Main Street and the on-ramps to Interstate 71 and U.S. 50/Columbia Parkway;
  • Broadway between Fourth and Sixth streets;
  • The southern half of the 500 block of Sycamore Street.
