DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Flood victims will also receive support from funds raised this weekend at the 2012 Twin Ports Bridge Festival in Duluth's Bayfront Park.

This year's event includes kids activities, community yoga, food, refreshments and craft vendors.

The festival includes live music from a variety of different bands.

Charlie Parr and Trampled by Turtles are among those in the line-up.

Bridge Fest organizers will send proceeds from the festival to the United Way.

The money will be dispersed to those in need, after the massive floods hit the Northland.

"It will go to the entire area. From Moose Lake, to Carlton, to Barnum to all they way up the North Shore if they need it, Superior. You name it. We do have mayors coming from all of those regions all over to speak between bands to talk about the flood relief efforts," said Lisa Neitzel, organizer.

The Twin Ports Bridge Fest runs through Sunday evening.
