Protesters blocked off Central Avenue and had a street party where they danced, drank and smoked marijuana during the protest in Duluth on Saturday, May 30. Earlier in the day more than 1,000 people marched through the streets of Duluth.

DULUTH – Rumor had it there would be busloads of protesters importing violence to Duluth this past weekend during the protests over the death of George Floyd.

The rumors were wrong.

"It's so much easier for us to want that to come from somewhere else than for that agitation and fear and hurt to be our own," Mayor Emily Larson said Monday. "That is us. That anger is this community, and so are the beautiful parts and the healing and the hard work that is to come."
