Duluth newsSome cool events are happening in Duluth today and through the weekend. Tonight you can catch the “Blood on the Tracks Express,” an actual no-messing-around¬†moving train that has live music and hospitality. The event is part of Duluth’s Dylan Festival, which mostly wrapped up last week (along with Dylan Days in Dylan’s hometown of Hibbing). This train event always gets rave reviews from people who take it in. Things are a little different this year because the track to Two Harbors is under repairs, so the train tools around some places in Duluth before letting out at a live concert venue amid the old trains at the train museum. Half a dozen bands are playing, including several alumni of my Great Northern Radio Show.

Also underway is the Duluth Superior Film Festival. You can catch free screenings of independent and local movies, featuring a reception with actress Patty Duke on Friday.

Duluth’s getting a lot of national attention because it’s been hot there this week, but they still have icebergs on the lake. That makes for some fun pictures:
