Apparently they are capable holding this event inside after all. 

Last year’s cancellation was a clusterf***. Could have had it right down the street in the UND parking garage with minimal inconvenience if they had really wanted to.

Just takes a little vision.

The word is they got a new French fry maker that is more versatile. Always assume the best.

Running an industrial fryer of that size is a little more complicated than just "putting it in the parking garage", particularly in an indoor or covered setting and when you're talking about finding room for thousands of people. They looked at moving it last year and determined there wasn't an option that would work on short notice. Last year was the first time in the history of the event and no one was happy about it. They made sure to have a much stronger contingency plan in place so they wouldn't have to cancel for a second year in a row.

So, the perimeter of the garage wouldn't have worked for ventilation purposes?  The garage is almost entirely open air.  And you do realize how much square footage that brings into play?

Again, it's a little more complicated than just pulling it into a parking spot. What is the clearance on the entrance and then the roof on the first floor? Based on the picture below, would the stacks be able to make it into the ramp and if they can, how close to the roof/second level floor are they?  What kind of mess does that make? Again, these were all things that were looked into last year. No one wanted to cancel the event.
