Redsfest kicks off tonight at the Duke Energy Center, and runs through tomorrow. Just about every major current player is scheduled to attend (Votto, Cozart, DeSclafani, Duvall, Hamilton, Iglesias, Lorenzen, Mesoraco, Suarez, and more), as well as the coaching staff (including Bryan Price), and the broadcasters (both Brennaman’s, Brantley, Day, and Welsh). In addition, there are many alumni including Pete Rose, Eric Davis, Tom Browning, Dave Parker, Dmitri Young, and more.
Redsfest is a first class operation, and features tons of wonderful activities for the kids, interviews on the main stage, and my personal favorite, the giant memorabilia vendor area. There are tickets still available, and if you can, you should definitely make your way down.
If you do make it down to Redsfest, be sure to share your stories and experiences in the comments! If you would also like to, feel free to send us a post however long or short documenting your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org.
