A few words from our Grand Marshal during the parade: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7jFeZdNfM0

In 2020, a year that almost did not see baseball due to the Corona Virus, a small parade was setup to continue the tradition.  No announcements were made with the reason of keeping crowds from forming.  The parade of 2020 was to deliver the ball for the first pitch from Findlay Market to the Great American Ballpark.  The parade consisted of just 6 units.  The units were:

Cincinnati Police - Officer Travis Schwab

Parade Banner - carried by Jake Luken & John Southwood

Golf Cart with Cincinnati Reds Cap

Cincinnati Fire Department Company #5 - Lt. William Feckter, FAO Martin Schickel, Firefighter Jonathan Hardman and Firefighter Emma Leidenbor

Pickup with Trailer carrying Grand Marshal & Opening Day Parade Chairman Neil Luken and Photographer & Parade Committee Member Jeffrey Gladish

Cincinnati Police - Officer Thomas Findlay
