NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

After a long history of problems, a ceremony was held at Bowen Field in New Haven on Thursday morning to reopen the fields.

The Bowen Field will be the site of this year's Elm City Bowl Thanksgiving game.

The field was shut down after asbestos was found in the stands, and chemicals in the track. 

The Thanksgiving game will be the first home game on the field for Hillhouse High since 2012.
