With the Metrodome now a hole in the ground, the Minnesota Vikings are moving their annual NFL Draft party to a new location.
The Vikings will hold the event at the Minneapolis Convention Center on May 8 for the first round of the draft. The party, which had been held at the Metrodome for the last two years, is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. and run through the duration of the first round.
Tickets can be purchased through the Vikings (www.vikings.com/drafttickets).
The Vikings are in possession of the eighth overall pick in the draft. After the first round on May 8, the second and third round will take place on May 9, followed the next day by the final four rounds.
