After a month or so of soft openings and adding a few tweaks here and there, Springfield at Universal Studios Hollywood officially opened yesterday. To kick off the grand opening the park held a great "Taste of Springfield" event on Tuesday night.
Below we'll show you some highlights of the event and some of the new touches they've added to Springfield.

Before the event, signs were up indicating there was a special event. By 5:00pm all of Springfield and The Simpsons were closed in preparation.
Yay, it's finally open!!!
Universal doesn't mess around with their special events.
After spending some time in the park it was time to head out and check in for the event.
The Yellow Carpet
New movie coming to The Aztec!!
Larry Kurzweil and Al Jean did some great speeches opening Springfield.
Unfortunately we apparently had the GoPro on "Picture" mode instead of "Video" mode. We are apparently still learning how to do this whole website thing. We'll figure it out one of these days. =)
And here come all of the residents of Springfield!!
And the great staff of Springfield.
Fireworks make everything more awesome!!
Be sure to check out the making of the Flaming Moe below.
Springfield looks so great at night.
Sideshow Bob is escaping!!!
The Springfield sign has been changed out to promote Simpsons Tapped Out. A little cross promotion is a good thing, as I'm totally addicted to Tapped Out. =)
We had a great night at Universal Studios Hollywood enjoying the food, hanging with friends, playing the games and generally just enjoying a relaxing night. Low key events like this are fantastic and allows the Universal Staff to just celebrate the great area they've created.
Great job by Universal Creative and everybody else who had a hand in creating Springfield. It's amazing!!!
We'll have a regular Universal Studios update in a few days.
