Tribute Fest is an event filled with many people's favorite music, but that is performed by cover bands.

Thursday was country night, and the rest of the festival featured over a dozen rock cover bands.

Tonight's last performances included covers of Fleetwood Mac, Mötley Crüe, and "The Boss" -- Bruce Springsteen, -- that all came together to support veterans in need.

Event manager Walt Aplin said, "This is all about raising money through rock and roll for homeless vets. So the money that is received goes to the MAC-V (Minnesota Assistance Counsel for Veterans) and it's raising money for homeless and jobless vets."

As much as the cover band's tribute great recording artists, the attendees tribute our veterans in need of help.

If you missed this year's Tribute Fest, it will be back again next year to help this great cause.
