#LightItBlue: Twin Cities landmarks go blue for healthcare workers, first responders
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Some Twin Cities landmarks will be illuminated in blue Thursday night to honor healthcare professionals and first responders working on the COVID-19 crisis.

The University of Minnesota lit TCF Bank Stadium blue Thursday night to honor healthcare workers and first responders.
In addition, the video screens on the outside of the park will all read, “Thank you to all those fighting on the front lines against COVID-19.”
