Recreation Coordinator Sarina Gilmore, who is organizing the competition, is excited to bring the event back to the Perris Community for a sixth consecutive year.
It’s so exciting to see everyone come out and perform on the grand stage and compete for a chance at some real prizes. They take it serious and so we should too,” said Gilmore. “We maybe think of talent being in some other place, but the truth is, we have plenty of talent right here in Perris and we want to give our community a chance to develop and foster that talent on the big stage.
Gilmore said Perris Got Talent was developed to help entertainers perfect their craft and give them a chance to perform on the big stage.
