Turn your business into a performance and get paid at Akron’s First Night!

First Night Akron is getting into gear for the 2014 event!  Our favorite family friendly event needs a whole slew of people to participate and perform on December 31st.  Now through right now they are looking for talent!

To be included in the cast of musicians, dancers, dramatic performers, puppeteers, movie directors, artists, interactive presenters, strolling entertainers or storytellers, you have to start by submitting a proposal!

Interested artists can visit First Night Akron online www.firstnightakron.org/artistproposals to fill out an application.  The deadline for proposals is 7/26/2013.

So, First Night Akron will probably be WAY mad if they find out I am saying this, but, what about finding a way to increase your company’s visibility through a performance or presentation of some kind?
