Springfield Simpsons MovieSpringfield, Vermont has beaten out thirteen other Springfields across the nation for the hosting honors of The Simpsons Movie world premiere. The small Vermont town won a competition, where Springfields around the U.S. submitted videos displaying why their town would be the best to host the movie. The smallest Springfield to enter with only 9,300 residents, Vermont’s town beat out contenders in Florida, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oregon, New Jersey, and Tennessee.
