The Findlay Market Opening Day Parade Through the Years

Cincinnati is a particularly distinct city. Its unique cultural traits, institutions and traditions make it a superbly charming place to live and visit. Events such as Bockfest, The May Festival, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, Tall Stacks, et. al. are some of the Queen City’s favorite annual events.

But only one has the potential to become a full-fledged city holiday and that is Opening Day.

On the Findlay Market Parade website, one can peruse “Parade Memories” from 1994, 1999, and 2001-2009.

These two photos from 1994 were especially interesting:
