Findlay Market Parade remains a fan favorite
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Despite a switch to after Opening Day and cold temperatures, the Findlay Market Parade was still the place to be on April 2. It's the 99th year for the event.
While crowds may have been lighter, thousands still lined the route as marching bands, floats and local dignitaries made their way through. Danny Graves and Sam LeCure served as the parade's two grand marshals. Both will spend time in the broadcasting booth during the Reds season.
Findlay Market Parade organizers said the days leading up to Easter are among the busiest. They didn't feel like venders could close during the originally scheduled Opening Day on Thursday. Rain then moved the first game to Friday, even closer to Easter.
Local 12 aired the parade live. Bob Herzog and Sheila Gray hosted the coverage.
