About

Since 1920, this parade has made its way from Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine through the streets of downtown each spring to kick off the Cincinnati Reds baseball season. Bring a chair and some noise makers and make a party of it at either Washington Park or Fountain Square as the parade passes by. The celebration continues throughout the day at Fountain Square with concessions and watching the game on the big screen. Show your Reds pride or be wowed by everyone else's and join in the fun!
