WATCH: The heartbreaking moment Red Wing learned it was not the Small Business Revolution winner
Celebration turned to heartache and then applause Wednesday, Feb. 22, after it was revealed in a streamed video announcement that Red Wing had lost to Bristol Borough, Pa., in the Small Business Revolution contest.
Red Wing was among five finalists for the $500,000 downtown revitalization contest. Other finalists were North Adams, Ma., Georgetown, S.C., and Kingsburg, Ca.
Below are some reactions to the loss on social media:
Proud of our town
