The search for two Island Idols — one male, one female — will begin April 10 at the Gulf Drive Cafe, 900 Gulf Drive N., Bradenton Beach.

Auditions will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., according to Mike Sales, who is coordinating the event for the Real Florida Festival.

Contestants must be 18 or older.

Contestants who advance in the first round of auditions will perform again before a panel of judges on April 11 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Island Idol finals will take place at 8 p.m. April 16 during the Holmes Beach Founders Day, part of the RFF activities.

The two winners will each receive $250 and an opportunity to perform at the RFF Parrothead Dance at the Anna Maria Island Community Center April 17.

Meanwhile, the winners of the Center’s Got Talent contest, held March 27, will be preparing their acts for performances in the Real Florida Festival.

Jillian Polk took first place in the vocals category, with second place honors going to Moriah Haley and third place to Katie Rose Dell.
