CINCINNATI — Findlay Market Opening Day Parade announced the lineup of organizations taking part in this year’s event, the first since 2019.

Marty Brennaman, the longtime voice of the Cincinnati Reds, will make an appearance with the Kid Glove Program. Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz and other Bengals greats will also be featured.

Findlay Market said Wednesday it is planning to pay tribute to local Olympians. Medalists Nick Goepper, Joe Hudepohl, David Payne, Mary Wineburg and George Wilson will be celebrated.

Outside of sports, Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Program is listed on the lineup. Mayor Aftab Pureval and Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine will also participate.

Barry Larkin will serve as the parade’s grand marshal. The Hall of Famer joined the FOX Sports Ohio broadcast team at the start of the 2021 season. He spent his entire 19-year big league career with the Reds and was a key player on the 1990 Reds team that won the World Series.

This year’s parade will start at noon April 12, the date of the Reds’ home opener against the Cleveland Guardians.
