Mt. Pleasant — Dancing, singing, magic and more are performed at the Henry County fair every year for the Bill Riley Talent show.

This year’s contest is expected to be interesting after many talented performers were disappointed last year when they postponed the 2020 Bill Riley Talent Search to 2021.

This year expect to see more talent then ever with qualifications holding over from the last year.

If you are interested in participating in the talent search contact Jill Taylor or the Henry County Fair.
