Cicada tourism

Greetings everyone, I grew up in eastern Hamilton county (OH) and remember 2 cicada emergences( brood NO. 10). I am planning a trip this spring and would love to time it for the 2008 emergence. My question is the timing; late may? early June? does anyone know when the peak is? I assume it will be the same for other broods in Cincy and areas in recent years. Love those little red eyes. Thanks and recently located some good Christian Moerlein in Wash.

As for brood X, the last emergence here was in 2004. The newspaper article published at the time gave a timeframe of May 17 to May 25...can't remember what days they actually started appearing.
