HIBBING, Minn. — The street where Bob Dylan grew up is being given the name "Dylan Drive" in his honor.
It's the first time the city of Hibbing, where Dylan also attended high school, is doing something permanent to honor him.
"This street sign, and the support we've received from so many people here in town, show once and for all that this town is proud of Bob and what he's accomplished," said Aaron Brown, committee chairman of Dylan Days, a four-day festival that honors Dylan and the arts.
The city had issued a proclamation on May 24, 2001, Dylan's 60th birthday, but that was just a one-day event, Brown said. The sign will be permanent.
