39 Days of July kicks into high gear

This week sees the opening of Duncan Has Talent

Duncan’s City Square was packed on Sunday night, July 2, as The 39 Days of July festival rounded out the Canada Day weekend with a show by PIGS, the Pink Floyd tribute band.

Their super guitar licks and familiar songs like ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ soon had the crowd grooving along, despite a roaring wind blowing through town at show time.
