A small but enthusiastic group gathered to toast Bridgey McBridgeface Sunday afternoon, April 1 at The Green Dragon Pub.

Owner Joe Minter opened the pub briefly and provided the attendees with April Fools Day's finest beer, Bud Light Platinum.

On Sunday (and for one day only) was the day designated by the Murfreesboro City Council to name the long-awaited Bridge over Broad Bridgey McBridgeface.

Mayor Shane McFarland said he took the hint from the overwhelming public support for the humorous naming and issued the official "tongue in cheek" proclamation.

The name came about after the City of Murfreesboro asked citizens to share their suggestions for naming or re-naming the so-called “Bridge Over Broad” by participating in an online web survey that ended in February.

The name "Bridgey McBridgeface" gained popularity in part through a social media campaign initiated by Murfreesboro resident Jeanne Vest from a story by Michelle Willard of the Murfreesboro Voice after the City Council announced in December it was accepting nominations to name the bridge.
