Mayor Fischer Declares Friday as Cardinal Red Day
Tuesday March 27, 2012
Encourages Citizens to Wear Red, Show Their Spirit
Saying he wants the city to set a world’s record for the most people wearing red in one day, Mayor Greg Fischer today declared Friday as Cardinal Red Day in Louisville.
He encouraged people to wear red, business to display red in their windows and doors and residents to show red at their homes and in their neighborhoods.
“I want to paint the town red – literally,” Fischer said. “Everyone knows that UK fans will be seeing red when the Cards win on Saturday.”
The mayor said if there is no world’s record category for Most People Wearing Red in a Day, the city will simply create one and declare victory.
“This is a great time to be a Louisvillian and to show your support for our hometown team,” Fischer said.
