Garrison Keillor presents, “Ten Things To Know Before You Move To Duluth” from A Prairie Home Companion
Our view out the backstage door at the DECC: Duluth’s mighty Aerial Lift Bridge, originally built to support a gondola that made 12 one-minute trips across the harbor canal every hour.

Duluth is our ocean port, our Amsterdam, our Naples, our San Francisco, and Superior is, as the name suggests, an above-average city, and that’s reason enough to go do a show. As a boy, I helped my dad net smelt at the mouth of the Lester River every spring, a biblical scene where God sent millions of tiny manna-like fish to help feed the poor. Duluth is imprinted in my mind as a generous city.
