Registration: 9am - 10am
Kay Rodgers Park, Fort Smith on the Old Fort Days Stage
A vocal talent competition designed to shine the spotlight on area singers will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2017, at Kay Rodgers Park in Fort Smith, AR on the Old Fort Days stage. The Old Fort Days Superstar Anthem Contest will give local singers the opportunity to sing “The National Anthem” at this year's Old Fort Days Rodeo.
“Any soloist or group can tryout at this event”, says Heath Wright, chairman of the Old Fort Days Super Star Anthem Contest. “Each person or group who enters will have a few seconds to give their best rendition of the National Anthem to a panel of qualified judges.” The judges will then select 10 finalists to perform the Anthem in its entirety. Five (5) winners will be selected to perform the National Anthem during the Old Fort Days Rodeo, which takes place May 29th through June 3rd at Kay Rodgers Park at 4400 Midland Blvd. in Fort Smith. “Those winners will also be scheduled to perform on the Choctaw Casino Stage at Kay Rodgers Park the night of their National Anthem performance".
Registration will take place from 9am to 10am and the official contest will begin shortly after that. The contest is open to all ages. Just remember, "don’t forget the words!” said Wright. The public is encouraged to attend and cheer for their favorite contestant.
