May 3 was otherwise known as #Five3Duluth in the nearby social media world.

LakeVoice, UMD's student-run news website, teamed up with KUMD in asking people to share photos of the day's activities on Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms. The photos were all gathered with the hashtag #Five3Duluth.

LakeVoice Editor-in-Chief Elly Power said the idea was to bring the community together and celebrate what it means to be a Duluthian.

"Duluth can't really come together all in one place in a certain physical area, but they can all come together on social media," she said.

Power said they were getting about 100 tweets per hour.
