The Greer Idol finalists have been announced with 10 vying for the Greer Idol title and 12 for Greer Idol Teen.
Kieffer Mendoza won Greer Idol and Kody Young, making his public singing debut, won Greer Idol Teen last year. They earned $1,500 and $500, respectively. The contest was shortened to three weeks when rain wiped out two of the scheduled performances.
Greer’s Freedom Blast is the next big event for a community-wide celebration scheduled June 28 at Greer City Hall.
The 30th Annual Family Fest broke all attendance records previously set at last year’s Freedom Blast that reportedly had 12,000 – 15,000 visitors with the Swingin’ Medallions performing. The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce organizes the Family Fest.
