‘Prince Day’ Declared by Minnesota Governor

Tuesday would have marked the 58th birthday of deceased ”Purple Rain“ musician

Get ready to party like it’s June 7, 1999, Minnesota.

On Monday, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton and Lt. Governor Tina Smith proclaimed that Tuesday will be Prince Day in Minnesota, in honor of deceased musician Prince.

Tuesday would have marked the 58th birthday of the musician, who died April 21.

In their proclamation, Dayton and Smith said that the day “is meant to celebrate Prince’s life and many contributions — not only in arts and culture, but also in his many acts of service to his fellow Minnesotans.”

Prince died April 21 after being found unresponsive in the elevator of his Paisley Park home in Minnesota.

Last week the Midwest Medical Examiner’s office announced that the “Little Red Corvette” musician died of a self-administered overdose of the opioid painkiller Fentanyl.

On Wednesday, the North End of Boston will continue its decades-long tradition of celebrating Prince Spaghetti Day.
