ST. PAUL, Minn. — The city of St. Paul is ready to throw a party to celebrate the legalization of same-sex marriage in Minnesota.

Rainbow pride flags adorned the Wabasha Street Bridge in St. Paul on Monday.

Gov. Mark Dayton plans to sign the bill into law at 5 p.m. Tuesday in a ceremony on the Capitol steps.

St. Paul city officials announced an outdoor concert right after the signing at a downtown plaza with more than a half-dozen performers. They’re calling it the “Love is Law” concert.

The announcement comes just moments after the state Senate voted in favor of the marriage bill.

Minnesota becomes the 12th U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage.
