Talent show judges will award first, second, and third place with prizes including speakers and gift cards donated by Airway Lanes, Climb Kalamazoo, Airborne Adventure Park, and Erbelli’s. The 1st place winner will be invited to perform at the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 24. All talent show participants will also be awarded a gift bag.
