Fans were invited to come down to city hall and take pictures in front of city hall, to celebrate and honor Duncan in downtown San Antonio. Some businesses decided to get in on the action as well, pricing special deals for the day. McDonald’s, for example decided to sell a 21 piece nuggets box, which coincides with Duncan’s jersey number where it is normally 20 pieces.
There are some really creative and cool things people from San Antonio banded together to do to celebrate together.
The internet is one way to catch some of the action, and so we show a glimpse of what’s happening in the city today.
Let’s take a look at some of the cool celebrations going on today.

The official seal of Mayor Taylor. This document makes the day official, and it’s a great day to celebrate.
The best part about Tim Duncan Day is, Tim Duncan himself is probably not interested, nor aware of half of the things going on in his honor.
That would make his own day, the most Tim Duncan thing ever.
