Salem Days Pageant and Fireworks

The pageant this year was the BEST it has been in YEARS. It was awesome! They did Salem's Got Talent. On Friday, they had 36 contestants. The top 10 got to move on to the actual pageant Saturday night. The 10 acts were really great. Brother-in-law was the MC, and he did an awesome job. I think the favorite was when he dressed up as Nacho Libre. My favorite act of the night was a 4-year-old little boy who sang a Jonas Brothers song. It was awesome! He even danced. So CUTE!!!!

After the pageant portion, they had some lady who lives in the city come and sing. It was kind of a downer. She sang her own songs, none of which were really upbeat and a little too country for my liking. At one point, she said she still had a couple more songs and half the crowd groaned! Then she sang one more song and one of the city council members gave her the cut-off signal. She talked him into letting them do one more song, and when it was over everyone cheered.

Fireworks were AWESOME!!! Marshy has never seen fireworks like those before, and was a little concerned at first, then he warmed up to them.

Giving mommy some cheese. He loves fireworks now! :)

Overall, it was a really good night. The only way it could've been better was if the 2nd act had kept the feel and the energy level up. Everyone was so pumped about the Salem's Got Talent, they needed someone who could keep it going. Maybe next year they can get a cover band or someone really cool.
