Opening Day! March 29

Things are a little different this year for the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day. It falls on the Thursday before Easter weekend, so the Opening Day parade will be held four days later. But that doesn’t mean the city isn’t celebrating the Reds first game of the 2018 season! Fountain Square in downtown Cincy is hosting an Opening Day party from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm, full of food, drink, music and a showing of the game on the LED board over the Square at 4:10 pm.
