Spring Festival 2012 -14
The 2016 Spring Festival Miss Lehigh and Junior Miss pageant will be conducted on Sunday, March 13 at Veteran’s Park in Lehigh. Rehearsals will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14 at Footnotes Dance and Music Studio…I know it’s Valentine’s Day, but due to scheduling issues we are only able to have Sunday rehearsals this year…and we need to get things under way early on in the month of February, due to the shortened rehearsal schedule. It’s important that all potential contestants attend all rehearsals…there is much to cover and for each of the young ladies to learn.
Anyhow…entry fees are $30 for the pageant and an additional $20 for the optional talent. Entry fees are due at the time the application is submitted.
Talent is NOT a factor in the judges’ selection of the crown winners, so even if you don’t have a talent you could still participate and potentially win!
Ages for this pageant are 9 thru 13, who will compete for the Junior Miss crown and ages 14 thru 18, who will compete for the Miss Lehigh crown.
Applications will be available at the first rehearsal. If you have questions or for more information, please contact Judy at 239-369-4003.
The Baby and Toddler pageant is around the corner…Sunday, March 13. Any local baby from newborn to 18 months is eligible to compete in the Baby portion of the pageant. Any local toddler from 19 months to 2 years is eligible to compete in the Toddler portion of the pageant. Applications will be up on the Spring Festival website soon. If you don’t want to wait, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll get you an application now.
Lehigh Acres Spring Festival auditions for both Adults and Juniors Idol Contest will be held at Majestic Golf Club, 350 Homestead Rd. S., Lehigh Acres, FL on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at 6:00 PM SHARP.

This year’s Spring Festival entertainment is going to kick off with an unforgettable lineup.
Since 1990, the Sauce Boss has cooked gumbo for audiences all over the United States, Canada, and Europe, while simultaneously playing his own swampy Florida blues. And at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 the Lehigh Spring Festival will bring him to the main stage to perform. A Sauce Boss event transcends performance…it becomes a soul-shouting picnic of rock and roll brotherhood, involving everyone in the audience. At the end of each show, everyone eats! How cool is that? You are invited to the Sauce Boss kitchen where he will be cooking up slide guitar blues and gumbo with a big splash of hot sauce.
Then, Santana meets The Doobie Brothers! One incredible band performs two tributes in concert, and yes, folks, that band will be performing on the main stage at the Lehigh Spring Festival at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night, March 15. The Classic Rock Revival show brings back the energy and excitement of two of the most iconic American Rock bands of all times…Santana and The Doobie Brothers. The show captures these bands in their prime, with the look, the sound, and the performance of multiple hits. This is a show that you don’t want to miss.
