The East Ridge Merchants Association and the city of East Ridge will make an effort to find undiscovered singing talent on Saturday when the winner of the Libertyfest 2014 Karaoke contest takes home a $1,000 first prize.
The contestants can enter the 1-4 p.m. competition on the Camp Jordan Amphitheatre stage for no entry fee.
ERMA member Mimi Lowery said she's excited about the competition that preludes five entertainment acts set for Libertyfest 2014. "We thought the Libertyfest Karaoke contest is a great way to get members of the community involved in the event," Ms. Lowery said. "This will be fun and hopefully we will be able to say one day that we helped to discover a star."
The contest will feature contestants taking the stage to sing a song of their choice. Those interested in competing for the top prize are asked to call or text David at 678.520-4533 to enter.
Libertyfest 2014 will also feature five entertaining music acts that begin at 4:30 p.m. and end with country music headliner Weston Burt closing the night out from 9:15-10:30 p.m. followed by a fireworks show.
Longtime ERMA member David Curd said he’s excited about the Saturday event at the popular Camp Jordan Park.
"We are looking to have a better year than we’ve had and Libertyfest is growing every year,” Mr. Curd said. “It has grown the past two years and we want people to come out and make it even bigger this year.”
Admission is $10 per person at the gate.
