KK Slider on a Monday?

If there is an event, he will perform on other days instead

If there is an event on a Saturday such as a Fishing Tourney or a Bug-Off, K.K. Slider will visit on Sunday instead. Again, he will only start performing from 6 PM onwards.

However, since the ver 1.4 summer update, Fireworks Shows have also occupied the Sunday night schedule. Because of this, he might schedule his gig on Monday instead.
