Summer Sounds has two shows left of the season with Rukus on Aug. 16 and Four Chords of Wood on Aug. 23.

PCS’s big pig made an appearance during the Sidney Days parade on July 1.

SIDNEY — Summer Sounds, put on by the Peninsula Celebrations Society has put on a few shows this month, seeing many people come out for the entertainment.

The cost of the Summer Sounds Concert Series costs around $10,000 dollars to put on each year, with the musicians paid along with the sound man paid. There are also other associated costs involved as well.

The Society has most of its  annual budget raised by volunteers, much of it at the Summer Sounds. Volunteers will go around the crowd, asking for donations to keep the concerts going.

‘If you like the gig, feed the pig’ is their motto.

Summer Sounds has two shows left of the season with Rukus on Aug. 16 and Four Chords of Wood on Aug. 23.

They are hoping to continue raising funds for the Festival of Trees at the Mary Winspear Centre along with the Santa Breakfast, Sidney Sparkles Christmas Parade and Sidney Days next year, along with other events throughout.
