Reds Hall of Famer Dave Concepción will be the Grand Marshal of the 95th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade.
The parade kicks off at noon on Monday, March 31.
Concepción was a nine-time All-Star and winner of five Gold Gloves during his 19 seasons with the Reds. He was inducted in the Reds Hall of Fame in 2000 and his jersey number, 13, was retired by the Reds in 2007.
The first pitch for the Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day game is 4:10 p.m.
Cincinnati's first neighborhood "Farmstand" opened Tuesday at Roberts Academy in Price Hill.
The farmstands are a partnership between Findlay Market and local groups hoping to encourage healthy eating habits by the convenience of a neighborhood location.
"We want this to be a convenient place to buy everything they need," said Tracy Power, resource coordinator of the community learning center at Roberts Academy. They plan to be able to offer meat and other cold foods soon.
Dress in red, but you'll have to do it in layers, with snow showers and temperatures in the 40's predicted. The cold weather doesn't seem to bother fans, who still line the parade route regardless of the forecast for the 94th annual Findlay Market Opening Day Parade.

He took a few minutes to come by our studio and talk with Mark Perzel about why he wanted this job, his impressions so far, and what plans and goals he has for the future.
In a recent article, The Boston Globe called Findlay market "A World Unto Itself."
