We were entertained by singers, dancers, baton twirlers, and even one young lady who played the fiddle while she hula hooped!--truly a great Hudson Valley variety show. But, of course, that's why Raphael's Talent Search has been such a big success and a much-anticipated Dutchess County Fair event for many years.
Pictured are the finalists from Tuesday's edition. All are invited back to perform again on Saturday at the big finale. AND, each is invited to perform at the State Fair in Syracuse!
PLUS! there's something extra special happening this year! It's VERY EXCITING NEWS!!! Winners in each of the categories at the big finale on Saturday will be eligible to audition for the TV show, America's Got Talent! Each winner will be given a Front-of-the-Line Pass for auditions in November.
There are a few openings available for the Thursday and Friday shows, in case you still want to get in on some of this fun. For 2019 Talent Search information go to the Fair website here or here's a link to the Facebook page for Raphael's Talent Search.
