Farm Animals to Broadway Tunes

Jean Rogalsky, UF/IFAS Extension, Pinellas County, 4-H Agent

Where else but in 4-H can you see such a variety of interests?  This Friday and Saturday Pinellas residents will be able to see a sampling of the talent and projects at 4-H Night of the Arts and Focus on 4-H.

Night of the Arts is the talent show and photo contest for 4-H members. Come see performers ages 5 through 18 showing off their talents.  The performers are awarded ribbons and the winners go on to District Events May 3rd.  The show begins at 7:00 p.m. , is free and open to the public.  It takes place at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center 4951  78th Avenue , Pinellas Park.

Perhaps you have heard about the new Greater Pinellas Country Fair?  There will be a kick-off reception before Night of the Arts starting at 5:00 p.m.  This reception is for those who might want to be vendors or support the fair. Refreshments will be served.
