Your Sister (City) is in town

A delegation from our sister city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, is visiting Duluth this weekend for the Tall Ships Duluth festival.

Duluth Sister Cities said in a news release that the 10-member delegation, led by Mayor Keith Hobbs, also will visit the Tweed Museum of Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth and meet with the Duluth Seaway Port Authority.

Delegates and Duluth representatives will sign a protocol agreement renewing sister city ties at 3 p.m. today behind the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.

The news release noted that Thunder Bay is Duluth’s oldest and closest sister city, with the relationship dating to 1980.
