MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A major event scheduled for this weekend at the Metrodome is being cancelled because of the roof collapse.

Organizers of the Hmong New Year celebration said they couldn’t come up with a big enough alternative venue in time, so they decided to cancel.

The collapsed dome has still not been repaired.

About 40,000 people were expected for the Hmong New Year celebration.

Ticket refunds are now being offered.

    Organizers of the Hmong New Year celebration said “they will move their new year celebration to another state if a new stadium is not built”…. just kidding… but really build something new for football but also make accomodations for other events. We have some very bright people in MN I am sure they can come up with something great!
