Bridgeport Day 2012!

The first ever Bridgeport Day was a huge success!  Even the rain was not a match for the community of the future.  It was a great site to see.  The parade at one point stretched about three blocks along Morgan with only one police escort leading the way.  The Residents of Bridgeport marched on through the rain gaining momentum as they passed by onlookers that may of had no idea what was actually happening.

The parade ended at Benton house where the block party continued for the remainder of the day.  The rain may have turned Benton House’s gym into an actual zoo, yes there was a sloth, but the event was still a huge success.  The Pop Up Pup Park even saw a few four legged friends brave the weather to have a good time.  We even got some help from past 26LAB students to help set up the Park.

A day that will be remember by all and hopefully not the last!             Link to more photos.
