“Dominion Day will run from 2 to 5 p.m. and party-goers will enjoy Dominion-crafted snacks and mocktails, live music by Vancouver DJ Tails, and a special guest appearance by Juno-nominated country music star, Aaron Pritchett,” Stacey Cheverie, Century Group’s manager of communications, told the Now-Leader on Thursday.

“Aaron will perform a 30-minute acoustic set, and music fans can expect to hear old favourites like ‘Hold My Beer’ and his most recent hit single, ‘Worth A Shot.’”
