Friday evening, people of all ages gathered for a free outdoor concert that was part of the Hibbing Jubilee. The celebration started Thursday with the 11th Annual Jubilee Business After Hours and Raffle.
Friday afternoon started with a spaghetti feed to raise money for the Kids Kare Fund, but the concert was the main event of the day.
They blocked off Howard Street and everyone set up their chairs in the road. Organizers said they hope it will bring even more interest and attention to the event that they put on to bring the community together.
"It's really important for us to have a chance as a community and region to get together and have a good time right and to infuse the economy," Lory Fedo, president of the Hibbing Area Chamber of Commerce, said. "It's always good for businesses to have this kind of activity."
There were food trucks and stands for people to enjoy and after the concert they lit off fireworks. They said they expected about 1,000 people to join in the festivities from both Hibbing and surrounding areas.
The Jubilee, which usually happens each year the weekend after the 4th of July, has been going on for about 25 years.
More businesses join the in the Jubilee tomorrow with the Festival on Fifth, where a variety of vendors will be set up. They also have the Taconite Trot, parade, and street dance on Saturday.
