The North Country Dylan Celebration kicked off on Friday.

The celebration is a combination of the Duluth Dylan Fest and Hibbing Dylan Days. Friday was a pre-party at Vintage Italian Pizza in Superior.

Saturday is the Salute to the Music of Bob Dylan, put on by the Historic Duluth Armory to help raise funds to restore the building.

"(It's) really about raising community awareness," says Nelson French, the vice president of the Armory Arts and Music Center's Board of Directors. "About the energy and the history of music, and the rich history of music that's associated with the Armory. So we're hoping people can have a good time, learn about a good cause, and walk away with a good feeling about the restoration of the Historic Duluth Armory."

The concert on Saturday is at 7 p.m. at Sacred Heart Music Center in Duluth. The lineup includes local and national musicians.

More information about the events can be found on the Duluth Dylan Fest Facebook page.
