The 2015 Tribute Fest concert opened with a local act Friday afternoon.
Gates opened at noon, two hours before Todd Eckart kicked off the festival with his tribute to the 1950’s and 60’s.
Concert organizer Lou Campbell said the crowd assembled to see Eckart was the largest for an opening act in the seven year history of the event.
Eckart said it’s important to take part in events like the Tribute Fest to raise awareness of the despair that the homeless, specifically homeless veterans face.
Prince tribute band, Chase and Ovation took the stage at 6 p.m., Friday.
Before the show Chase said the event is extremely important because it reminds us all how important it is to take care of veterans and each other.
Proceeds from the festival benefit Minnesota homeless veterans.
Tribute Fest will continue with rock acts, Saturday afternoon.
Veteran and active duty military admission is free.
The first ever country music Tribute Fest will take place Sunday.
