Show-off your talents in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - From singing, to dancing, pet tricks, even ventriloquists, the Oceanfront Merchant’s Association is setting the stage for you to show off your talent.

If you have a unique talent, or you want to see a good show, you should head down to Plylar Park for Boardwalk’s Got Talent, Friday.

The brand new event, this summer, is a spinoff of America's Got Talent.

The best part, anyone of any age, can try out.

It took place four weekends this summer, and there's only two left, before the finals. The last Friday, is August 28.

The perk? The weekly winner gets $100 in cash, plus 2 show tickets to the Legends in Concert, and a chance to compete in the Grand Finale Show, Labor Day Weekend. That winner, will get a thousand dollar prize pack. and a chance to open for the Legends show.

The bigger win will be hopefully, for the city. The idea behind this new summer event, is to give you, the locals, a reason to head downtown.

“Once it comes after Labor Day, we really depend on our locals to come down here and enjoy the downtown area, this is their city,” OMA’s Director Peggy Iverson said. “If you haven't been down here as a local, in the last few years, and you come down here and check it out you're gonna see a lot of new things. There's changes all the time, constant improvement."

Boardwalk's Got Talent will take place from 7:00 to 10:00 o'clock, Friday.

If you want to perform, you can show up and try to get a slot or you can apply online.

    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - As the heat index climbs above 100, the temperature reading on your car's dashboard will likely show an even higher number.
