You know you're a big deal when two towns end up having special weekends to mark your birthday. Safe to say Bob Dylan is a big deal in his native state of Minnesota.
Starting tomorrow, the city of Hibbing kicks off a three-day celebration to mark his 72nd birthday. The event will include music, poetry and a singer-songwriter contest. Dylan grew up in Hibbing and went to high school there. Not to be outdone is Duluth, where Dylan was born. That city has been holding a Dylan Fest since last weekend. This year the two groups organizing the events are working together to coordinate the tributes.
Bob Dylan and his band come to Riverfront Park in Nashville on Sunday, June 30th. Don't forget to check out your shot at free ticket on the contest section of this website!!
