BRIDGEPORT THANKSGIVINGS DAY PARADE TO BE HELD INDOORS THIS YEAR

CITY'S DECISION TO TAKE THE CHILL OUT OF THIS YEAR'S PARADE AND MOVE THE PARADE INTO THE OLD BRIDGEPORT DOMED FOOTBALL STADIUM IS DRAWING MIXED SENTIMENT FROM LOCAL RESIDENTS.....

BRIDGEPORT, MN.

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.
Mayor Dover is on a Key West  business trip
Dover, who is currently on a business trip in Key West, Florida, told OFF THE WALL NEWS in a text message, "I can't imagine anyone wanting to sit outside and watch a parade in the kind of weather you are having up there. I mean, here it's only77 degrees today and there's talk of postponing the parade here tomorrow because of the cool weather."
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?
