Simcoe Rising Star Dream Big Semi Finals Happens This Weekend
I’m sure we know by now that there is tons of local talent here in our community! We’ve been uncovering them at pubs and podcasts for a while and recently became second and third prize sponsors for Barrie’s local talent show “Simcoe Rising Star Dream Big”
The Brains Behind The Operation
A few months ago, we interviewed Karen Macintosh, organizer of the Rising Star event and she let us know that this is an all ages event that encourages singers, dancers, comedians and even DJs to dream big! She also let us know that a portion of the proceeds will be going to Finding Them Homes, a dog rescuing company which helps puppies find their forever homes!
Wait, did you just say PUPPIES?
Yes that’s right, I said puppies! Puppies and talent all in one? It can’t be true….. but it is! On Sunday June 23rd (semi final audition day) there is going to be a Meet and Greet with some of the puppies from Finding Them Homes from 10am-12 pm. You can literally cuddle puppies while discovering local talent and bonus, you can also shop because there will be vendors there. Entertainment, loving puppies and shopping all in one place? Talk about an absolutely incredible time!
In terms of the awesome participants taking place in the semis (including our very own talented Sharon btw!) 30 will be cut to 12 by some pretty cool judges including last years winner Christine Jackson to determine who will make it into the grand finale, which is taking place in September. You won’t want to miss this beyond amazing time! Tickets are just five dollars and you can buy them at the door at Ferndale Banquet Hall.
