On Day 3, the Homegrown Music Festival took over Canal Park. There were 19 shows spread across six venues, plus the Homegrown Music Video Festival encore presentation.

It's impossible to hit every show, but there are two Homegrown strategies: hop or stop. 

Tuesday night, WDIO hopped, hitting Ursa Minor Brewing, Sir Benedict's Tavern, Prove Gallery, Vikre Distillery and Amazing Grace Bakery & Cafe.

"If you look around, you know most of the people out," Susannah Myers said during the Dance Attic show. "And that's really cool."

Myers and Sarah Coyle had already seen 5-7 bands by the time Canal Park Night started. 

"After a long winter in Minnesota, you need to get out, and you need to experience joy," Coyle said. 

Homegrown Music Video Festival

Tuesday night also featured an encore performance of the Homegrown Music Video Festival. 

People who register are randomly assigned a song from a past or present Homegrown artist, and they have about a month to create a music video based on that song. 

This year, there were seven videos featured. 

"They get creative with storytelling. Some of them round up some actors and you see some cool sights in Duluth and tell a short little story," Sean Zarn said. "And then some of them are getting more creative with camera effects to have a cool, visual display that goes with the song."

Zarn hopes to open registration a little earlier next year to attract even more video artists.
