Basking in talent and all things burger

Published 4:10 pm Wednesday, August 9, 2017

The All-American Burger Bash is less than a month away, and as promised, I have some news to drop on the first-ever Jessamine Life Talent Showcase!

I would like to invite and encourage everyone with talent to share to put it on display at the City/County Park Pavilion on Friday, September 1 for the Jessamine Life Talent Showcase! The event will help kick off the All-American Burger Bash at 6:30 p.m., with check-ins from 5:30-6:15 p.m. 

The contest will feature two categories, Music/Vocal Performance and Dance/Novelty Performance, and there will be three age brackets: 9 and under, 13-18 and 19 and older. Entry into the contest will be FREE, and prizes will be awarded to the winners in each category, as well having their photos featured in an upcoming issue of Jessamine Life Magazine!
