Reds Opening Day Parade

Posted on: March 28, 2024

Carlisle High School Marching Band performed for the 2nd year in the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade.

Last year it is estimated that 130,000 were in attendance for the parade.

When Sparky Anderson arrived on the scene with the Reds in 1970, Opening Day was an established holiday in Cincinnati. You can’t find it on the calendar, but make no mistake: Opening Day is baseball’s annual festival and nowhere is it celebrated like it is in the Queen City.

Certainly one of the most memorable and historic Openers in recent history was the 2003 affair, when the Reds christened their new home, Great American Ball Park. It was only the second time since 1912 that the Reds had opened in a brand new facility on Opening Day.
