As a Jehovah Witness, Prince didn’t celebrate his birthday, but that hasn’t dissuaded folks from planning events around the world for his special day.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton even declared the day ‘Prince Day.’

In Minneapolis, a screening of the ‘Sign ‘O’ the Times’ movie at WXYZ Bar at Aloft will be followed by a dance party.

In Dublin, Ireland a tribute band will rock out for an event being billed as ‘Prince’s 58th Birthday Celebration.’
