Sean Casey named Grand Marshal of Findlay Market Opening Day Parade
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Former "Mayor" of Riverfront Stadium Sean Casey will be the Grand Marshal for the 98th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade. The announcement was made on March 17 at Findlay Market.
Phil Castellini, Neil Luken, Mayor John Cranley and Jim Scott made the announcement. Said Castellini, "You couldn't pick a better grand marshal. He's going to be fun. He's going to have a blast himself, I know that. We're going to enjoy having him at the ballpark after the parade, as well."
The Reds posted video of Casey talking about the honor. He mostly wanted to talk about food, Skyline, Montgomery Inn and Graeters. Casey said he hasn't been back to Cincinnati in a long time. "It's going to be unbelievable. Can't wait to see all the fans, nothing like Opening Day in Cincinnati".
The parade will begin at noon on April 3. If you can't make it down there, you can watch it on Local 12, Local12.com and on the Local 12 Facebook page.
