City officials, led by Mayor Ben Dover met in a telephone conference call last Sunday and voted to move the annual parade into into 70,000 seat Bridgeport Stadium. Their reason being, parade goers would not have to suffer in the cold and snowy conditions often experienced around Thanksgiving in Bridgeport.

While many residents in Bridgeport thought the idea a good one, many more thought less of it. Tillie McBride, 40, was irate. "I bought four new lawn chairs and new winter coats for the kids, for this year's parade!" She complained. "I just may boycott the parade this year!"
She won't be alone as many are calling for a recall vote of Mayor Dover. He may be out of a job when he comes back from Florida.
OFF THE WALL NEWS WILL wonders how you, the reader feels. Should the parade be indoors?
