Talent search underway

Carefree RV Resorts is taking guest performances to a whole new level.

This winter, RVers from the company’s 28 Florida resorts will participate in the first ever “Carefree’s Got Talent!” and compete for a grand prize of $5,000, according to a news release.

“We’re looking for all kinds of talented people including singers, dancers, comedians, actors, impersonators, jugglers, musicians and ventriloquists,” said Stephanie Martin, a spokeswoman for the Carefree RV Resorts chain.

The competition will involve preliminary competitions at each Carefree RV Resort property in Florida in early March. The winners of those competitions will then advance to compete at the final Carefree’s Got Talent! Competition on March 29 at Carefree’s Red Oak RV Resort in Bushnell.

Competitors must be a resident or a guest at a Florida-based Carefree RV Resort for three months or more during the 2011-2012 winter season. Additional information and competition schedules will be posted at each Carefree RV Resort in Florida in the coming weeks.

Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Carefree RV Resorts offers a wide variety of RV campgrounds throughout Florida, Texas, New Jersey, California and Massachusetts for every type of RV vacation. All properties have a wide variety of amenities including, clubhouse, swimming pool, planned activities programs as well as rental units, which can accommodate people who don’t have their own RV.
