Cincinnati Reds Opening Day

Our social butterfly came out for the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade (I call him a social butterfly because it seems like he has more appointments and is out and about more than anyone I know). The Italian Society has had a float in the Opening Day Parade for the past few years. My parents and my aunt participate in the Italian Society float every year and they wanted to take Jackson this year. Here’s some photos from Monday.

Decked out in Reds gear and ready to go.


My dad attaching a nine foot flag pole to Jackson’s wheelchair. Yes, it really is nine feet long. Go big or go home 🙂


All smiles at the beginning of the day.

The Parade starts at Findlay Market, winds its way throughout downtown, past Fountain Square and ends at the Taft Theater. Below are more Parade pictures, with one of my favorites with Jackson and the somewhat scary-looking “Misled Cincinnati”, whom I just found out is also a huge Bengals fan. Jackson had a great time, but was ready for a nap by the time he hit the Taft Theater. Josh and I and his IBM (Italian-by-Marriage) grandparents were able to meet up with the Italians for the last few blocks of the Parade.
