A New Bridge

The 2008 May Day Parade begins!

The Theme this year is "A New Bridge: Infrastructure for the Future Beings".

On August 1, 2007, the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi, connecting downtown Minneapolis with points north of the river, collapsed. Thirteen people were killed and 145 wounded.

The bridge collapse was the subject of many Mpls projects. The May Day Parade made great use of bridge symbolism whether directly connected to the collapse or not.
