There's a lot of talent here in Maine but one thing that will we come to find out on Friday night is who in Hancock County has the most.
This Friday evening starting at 6:30 PM Blue HIll Fair's Hancock County's Got Talent will be featured on the stage of the Grand in Ellsworth. Those who come by for the free event will see 12 acts take the stage and thrill audience goers with their talent.
Winners will get cash prizes with a $500 grand prize and, of course, glory of winning the competition.
This year, judges of the acts will be celebrity judges that include area celebs including:
- Emily Young of The Emily Young Band
- Chris Crockett of The Ellsworth American
- Patricia Schimpf, Miss Maine for America Strong
- Ashley Terwilliger, The Grand's Community Relations Manger
The Blue Hill Fair has wrapped up for the season but the final acts of the 'Hancock County's Got Talent Contest' will finish up this Friday.
WDEA covered the preliminaries of the competition a few weeks ago in mid-August. Performances from August included Wayside, Abigail Green, Lisa Durkee, Ben Changler, Jasmine Berry, Jeffrey King, Bobby Cleveland, Oliver and Tim Miller, Sara Hicks, Finley Harmon, Brent Hutchins, and Amberley Edington.
The contestants have been narrowed down to 12 finalists and we'll get to see who will come out on top of the talent pool down there in Hancock County.
Good luck to all the performers and check out this event for free at the newly painted Grand in Downtown Ellsworth Friday starting at 6:30 PM.
