In Memory of Raymond Wegman

Raymond “Ray” Wegman, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away on January 21, 2021, he was 88 years old.    Ray was a huge supporter of the Opening Day Parade for longer than most of us have been associated with the Parade.  Ray has led the Parade with his legendary Tally-Ho Wagon since the early 1980s and never missed a Opening Day Parade since his first appearance. At that time, the parade lined up on Race Street and didn’t need more space than Race Street for the entire line up area.  The Wegman Tally-Ho Wagon has been recognized as participating in the very first Findlay Market Opening Day parade in 1920.
