Mayor Declares Friday “Cardinal Red” Day in Louisville

Politics aside, basketball rules in Louisville despite where party lines lie or loyalties are drawn.  Mayor Fischer declares Friday “Cardinal Red Day” as the Cardinals face off against the Kentucky Wildcats. 

Dressed in red, UofL fans cheer on the Cards against St. Louis.  

Painting the town red in support for the basketball team’s tournament run, Mayor Fischer said for, "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."

Cardinal fans scream for their team.  

When UofL and UK met in the Final Four in 2012, Louisvillians set a record for the most people wearing red in one day, according to Mayor Fischer.  And though Louisville lost and UK went on to win the 2012 championship, Louisvillians could not have been more proud of their team in 2012. 

"This is another great time to be a Louisvillian and to show your support for our hometown team," Fischer said.

God Bless Louisville, and go Cards!
