Pasco Showcase of Talent auditions were held Saturday in the Dan Cannon Auditorium at the Pasco County Fairgrounds in preparation for the talent show Feb. 18.
Forty-one performers ages 7 through 76 auditioned to have an opportunity to win trophies and cash at the show, held annually during the Pasco County Fair.
Brenda Rubio, a member of the Pasco County Fair Board of Directors, took the lead on the Showcase this year.
"For my first time, I thought things were awesome," Rubio said. "We have a lot of talent. I give them a lot of credit for doing it. No one had sour faces or frowns."
It's new territory for Rubio. "I've never been a talent person," she said. "I always took care of the food."
The 66th annual Pasco County Fair will run Feb. 18 through 24. The Pasco Showcase of Talent competition will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 18, a Monday, in the Dan Cannon Auditorium. The show is free with fair admission.
The fairground is atat 36722 State Road 52 in Dade City.
