MIDDLEPORT — The holiday season will soon be upon us, and once again, the Riverbend Arts Council will usher in the season with an evening of entertainment sure to be fun for the entire family.

The Riverbend Talent Revue will take place on Friday, Nov. 24. This year’s theme is “Big Band Christmas” and will feature the talents of some of the brightest talents our area has to offer.

In a statement, Talent Revue director Bonne Kreseen said, “As the area’s longest running Holiday program, it’s helped kick off the season for generations. Local performers of all ages are gearing up to bring you ‘Big Band Christmas’ sharing original versions of your Holiday favorites through song and dance. Come out and share in this community tradition, and enjoy an evening of great entertainment.”
