Main Street Market in full swing

This past Saturday saw events for all interests.

Starting with the “Scary Cycle Tour” at Lakeside Park. Councilmember Scott Cannon led a bike tour starting at Lakeside Park and winding up at Armstrong Park for the dias de Duncanville events.

From 9:00am to 2:00pm there was the Main Street Market, hosted by the Keep Duncanville Beautiful Board with vendors, and market displays of local goods and recycled items.

The BooBQ went on from noon to 4pm with a BBQ contest and grand prize of $1.000. Awards for the BBQ contest and art contest were announced at 3:30pm.

Live music filled the air from noon to 4pm.

The two northbound lanes of Main Street along Armstrong Park were closed to allow parking, foot traffic, and a bicycle lane for the event. The two southbound lanes were divided for thru traffic.
