Springfield, Vermont, Edges out Springfield, NJ

Following up on an item we posted a few weeks ago, the town of Springfield, VT, hosted the premier of the Simpson’s movie. Springfield’s from across the country sent films promotional films to producers touting why their Springfield should hose the tournament. Ironically, Springfield, VT, wasn’t even invited to participate in the contest, which was won based on a poll in USAToday. However, a strong lobbying effort got them in and, apparently, an even stronger film won the town the contest.

No word on where Springfield, NJ, finished in the contest. The Simpson’s Movie opens this weekend in theaters other than Springfield.

    I am one of 200 volunteers who appeared in the winning Springfield Vermont video. After we helped our local Chamber of Commerce win the contest, they turned their backs on us. We should have been the first in town to be receive invitations to the world premiere but the elite in town were awarded our seats instead. And then not even a word of thanks or mention of us in the public ceremony outside the theater! Read more and view our famous winning video on our new website:
