Anyone in Cincinnati knows that Opening Day is a unofficial holiday. It’s the one day that children can play hooky from school and it’s OK. From the parades, to the food, to the memories, to the fun. Here in Cincinnati Opening Day means so much more than just peanuts and cracker jacks- it’s the beginning of spring, it’s togetherness, it’s good ‘ol fashioned family fun. And Great American Ball Park is always full of not only Cincinnati Reds fans, but fans of the game!
Last year, the Cincinnati Reds allowed the Red Cross volunteers to hold the flag on the field. More than 50 volunteers where there to get in on all of the fun! This year we didn’t go out on the field, but we participated in the parade. We even had some fun right here at the Headquarters/Disaster Operations Center by incorporating our Fine Art’s Campaign into a Reds Opening Day event complete with peanuts, popcorn and grilled hot dogs! We all love Opening Day! How could we not? Cincinnati Red Cross…Cincinnati Reds! Sounds like a match made in heaven to me!
