Beyoncé Officially Has Her Own Holiday in Minnesota
Mark your calendars, Minnesotans!
Beyoncé just got her own official holiday in Minnesota thanks to governor Mark Dayton. He declared Monday (May 23, 2016) the first annual Beyoncé Day, the same day she performed in his state. “Beyoncé has influenced many Minnesota girls and women with the powerful, positive messages in her music and her impact and success have been widely-recognized,” Dayton in an official statement. “Now, therefore…I herby proclaim Monday as Beyoncé day.”
Considering Queen Bey’s concert didn’t exactly go as planned since rain and thunderstorms threatened to cancel the show at the outdoor arena, this is some exciting news.

Now if only other state governors would follow in Dayton’s footsteps, we would finally have an official excuse to celebrate her every year.
