Name the 2009 Fringe Festival kitty!

The Minnesota Fringe Festival, which runs from July 30 through August 9, just launched a spiffy new website with a funky little kitty as their mascot. MinnPost followers on Twitter, your job is to name that kitty!

This contest has ended. See below for the winner.

MinnPost is proud to be a sponsor for this year’s Minnesota Fringe Festival. On July 1, the Fringe launched their new website featuring show descriptions, times, locations, and a funky little kitty logo:

MinnPost followers on Twitter, this little kitty needs a name! Join Twitter, follow @MinnPost, and tweet a name befitting the mascot representing hundreds of performances of dozens of eclectic shows. Make sure #mp140 is in your tweet.

The Fringe Festival staff has spoken, and they’ve selected “Wobbles” for the name of their kitty mascot! Congrats to Nick Busse from St. Paul!
