Each year, the city of Portland gets together to celebrate Windfest. This year, they are hoping to do it with some very talented people from our area.

Portland’s Got Talent (PGT) promises to be a fun-filled talent competition for all ages. From singers, dancers and musicians, to jugglers, magicians and those with just about any other skill, the completion is hoping to attract performers who know how to give an audience what it wants.

All ages are welcome to audition.

The winners of PGT will be chosen after performing April 11. The People’s Choice will be determined by audience votes. The Judge’s Choice will be based on set criteria and determined by five judges. The two winners will be the opening acts at Windfest on April 12 and will each earn a $500 cash prize.

Before then, participants must fill out an application and submit a video (no more than 3 minutes in length) by  midnight, March 30.  Those who are chosen from the video submissions will be invited to perform.

Anyone interested in participating should contact the Portland Chamber of Commerce at (361) 777-4650. Information and applications may be found at
