Whether you are an individual or a group who possesses a talent of some kind, you are invited to fill out an entry form to participate in the village's 4th Annual 'Glencoe’s Got Talent' event.
The event, this year coined 'Glee-ful Fourth of July' was started in 2009 by the Village of Glencoe's Human Relations Forum.
The intent was to bring the community together.
"Our goal was to be inclusive to all different cultures, religions and ethnicities that make up our community, while showcasing the talents of our neighbors and friends," said Joel Heifitz, Human Relations Forum member and MC of the event.
At last year's event, according to Heifitz, more than 500 spectators cheered on acts including opera singers, child violinists, teenage rock bands and Irish tap dancers.
Musicians, bands, singers, dancers, jugglers, contortionists and a variety of other talents will be considered. People with talents of all ages are welcome.
A food drive for the North Shore Food Pantry also is part of the event. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned and non-perishable foods to be donated.
"Every community has hidden treasures, and we want to show off the talented people living in our community," Heifitz said.
The event will be held July 4 at Wyman Green from noon until 2 p.m., just before the Independence Day Parade kicks off.
Admission is free and open to the public.
The Human Relations Forum is a group of citizens appointed by the village president whose goal in part, is to enhance and support community relations.
