Last night kicked off this weekend's Twin Cities Summer Jam Festival, and the heat and humidity didn't stop an estimated 12,000 fans to dance to Soul Asylum, REO Speedwagon and Rascal Flatts.

Canterbury Park has never hosted a concert series of this scale. The three-day series will feature artists like Pitbull, Tim McGraw and Aerosmith. More people are expected to attend the Summer Jam this weekend.
