So much spaghetti is ready for the Michelina’s All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner at the DECC.

Crews in the kitchen have been cooking up the noodles and cutting up the herbs for the sauce.

Chef Jerry Carpenter said they are ready for anything. “I think it’s the kick-off to summer in Duluth. It’s a good venue, and a good community event.”

Last year they fed 5,200 people.

The dinner is 11am-9pm on Friday. $18 for adults, $9 for kids 5-12. Kids 4 and under are free.
