Margate Seeks Performers for "Thrilling Thursdays"

This summer the streets in the business district are going to take on the air of fun as entertainers will be stationed along Ventnor and Atlantic Avenue to help locals and visitors enjoy "Thrilling Thursdays."
Beginning June 25 and running for 10 consecutive weeks, Margate will host Thrilling Thursday, a day dedicated to giving residents and visitors memories that are worth coming back for week after week.
Thursdays will feature select entertainers who can intact with children and adults. "Like you find in the Village in New York - where a caricarturist might be working on a corner and you hear a great saxophone player on the next - we want the atmosphere in margate to be very positive and upbeat," said Anna Marie Blescia, director of the Margate Business Association. Blescia says the MBA wants Margate to become a destination for visitors and shoppers with attractions such as the Margate Community Farmers Market on the grounds of Steve & Cookie's on Thursday mornings that began last year.
Merchants will be cooperating with draws such as in-store specials, sidewalk sales and lunch and dinners along the avenue on Thurdays.
The city also announced recently the no badges will be required on the city's beaches on Thursdays.
All that, coupled with the addition of the street performers just might put the thrill in "Thrilling Thursdays".
The Margate Business Association is looking for talent to showcase on the streets this summer. it is seeking local performers, jugglers, magicians, caricature artists, puppeteers, mimes, balloon artists, clowns and musicians.
"This is a great chance for some of our local performers to get some exposure." Blescia said.
Performers and artists are asked to send a resume or send a demo or sample for MBA members to review. They should provide the specific dates they are available to facilitate scheduling and make sure everyone who qualifies has a chance to shine.
