- a 90-mile wide area that will experience total darkness. At about 10:20 that morning, Monmouth will experience 2 minutes of total darkness (with planets visible). The next such event in this part of the world will not occur for another 125 years and thousands of people will be visiting the area for the eclipse.
To celebrate this momentous event, the Monmouth Business Association and the City of Monmouth are presenting a special concert in the Main Street Park Amphitheater on Sunday night, August 20. Pink Floyd tribute band, Pigs On The Wing will play Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety (along with other Pink Floyd favorites). Please share the news with others and we hope to see you there. As always, this is a free concert.
