— SELINSGROVE — Local vocalists who failed to win a spot on Sunbury River Festival’s Valley’s Got Talent show later this month will have another chance to compete at the Selinsgrove Market Street Festival in September.

For the first time, the borough’s one-day festival will feature a singing contest with cash prizes.

Fifteen vocal acts and bands will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis, said Joyce Hendricks.

“Our hope is that vocalists who didn’t qualify for the Valley’s Got Talent will sign up with us,” she said.

The Selinsgrove Market Street Festival will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, September 28.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the three top acts, with $300 for first place; $200 for second place and $100 for third place.

Six entries had already been received by Thursday afternoon and the deadline is Aug. 31.
