Opening Day parade entries cut back

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

This year's Opening Day parade will be notably shorter.

In an email to supporters, Findlay Market Association said that people should expect a shorter and more exciting parade this spring.

The association says the parade has gotten too long, clocking in at almost three hours last year.

This year the goal is to get the time down to two hours from start to finish.

To accomplish this goal, the association is limiting the number of parade entries to 200. They have also capped the number of band members allowed to march in band to 25.

The parade is April 1, 2013 in Downtown Cincinnati.
