Franklin's Taste of Talent is a family friendly community gathering every week in Bandstand Park. Hundreds of chairs and dozens of blankets are strewn out throughout the shaded park to hear several area vocalists give it their best.
And folks have fun if the faces of the crowd are any indication.
Editor's note: We weren't able to stay for the entire performance Wednesday so we didn't get photos of every performer. Our Friends Garret Kline, David Schmude and Baby Dahl photography were there getting it done though.
It is an elimination style event so each week a performer is "voted off." "I hate that part," said events coordinator Ronnie Beith, who has been known to shed real tears when one of "her" contestants isn't voted back the following week.
Emcee Tammi Dahl said that Titusville's Maesa Burns' rendition of "Someone to Watch Over Me" was amazing, but she did not get enough votes to return next week. Burns was the last performer of the evening.
Returning next week for the quarter final performances will be Iris Callahan, Tim Craver, Shanay Jackson, Madison Wakefield, Alexander Karg, Kaleb Beichner, Ruth Herrick and Christian Agnew.
The night kicks off a 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
The following week the event moves to Saturday night for the semi-finals beginning at 7 p.m.
The event finals follow the next day beginning at 4 p.m. where the final four performers will get a chance to show off two songs to win over the crowd.
With only a couple weeks remaining the question is, who will finish number one?
