Calling all Port Washington children between the ages of 5 and 18 who sing, dance, play a musical instrument, read poetry or are otherwise talented. The Port Washington Chamber of Commerce wants you to practice, practice, practice and come to the HarborFest talent show auditions on May 6. This year’s 26th Annual HarborFest celebration will take place on Sunday, June 5.

The auditions will be held in the front room of 382 Main St. (the Community Chest building/Mertz Community Center) on Friday, May 6, from 3 to 7:30 p.m. Come anytime during these hours—there is no preregistration.
