Vermont Town Is Selected As Home Of The Simpsons

Ending a contest that involved 14 U.S. towns and cities named Springfield, the Vermont town by that name (population 9,300) was officially proclaimed the hometown of TV's (and soon the movies') the Simpsons and was chosen to host the premiere of The Simpsons Movie on July 26. In the promotional video the town put together for the contest, a local talk-show host, playing a real-life Homer, chases a giant, pink doughnut through the streets. In a statement, Gov. Jim Douglas said. This is an exciting, exhilarating moment for Vermonters. ... Perhaps more importantly, it proves there's really nothing a giant doughnut can't do." The Vermont town did have the edge on the other Springfields -- it has a nuclear power plant down the road, commuting distance for Homer.
