Mayor Fischer Declares Friday “Cardinal Red Day”

 Have you bought your University of Louisville apparel, yet? If not make sure you stock up on Louisville Cardinals hats, apparel and merchandise for “Cardinal Red Day”.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has declared Friday “Cardinal Red Day” in the city of Louisville, and says he wants the city to break the world record it set two years ago for the most people wearing red in one day. The Mayor today declared Friday as Cardinal Red Day in Louisville – as the Cards take on the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Sweet 16 in Indianapolis

In his official proclamation, Mayor Fischer urges “all citizens to wear red, businesses 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. “This is another great time to be a Louisvillian and to show your support for our hometown team.”

Regardless of your politics, you have to appreciate a mayor willing to forget about the politically savvy move and consistently put his support squarely behind the city’s team.

If there was ever a week to sport as much red as possible, this is it. Remember to support the Cardinals and wear red on Friday as the rivals tip off following the 7:15 p.m. Michigan-Tennessee Sweet 16 game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
