Parksville Idol will crown its winners on Saturday

Nineteen performers have made the semifinals of Parksville Idol and winners will be determined after they sing for the crowd Saturday in Parksville Community Park.

Parksville Idol was developed to celebrate the theme of this year's sand sculptures, music. The contest was open to solo, amateur singers. Amateur was defined as someone whose main income is not derived from singing, or someone who has a CD or record.

The semi-finalists were determined by online vote. The semifinals are scheduled for 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Gazebo and two performers from each of three age categories will make it to the finals at 8:30 p.m., just before the fireworks.

Here's a list of the semi-finalists in the three categories of Parksville Idol, sponsored by The NEWS, the City of Parksville and the Quality Foods Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition (in their appearance order):

Kids' category (ages six-12): Brieanne DeVore, Isaiah McAleese, Jessica Kelly, MacKenna Jardine, Moriah Kostamo, Noah McAleese, Perrin Strijckers and Zoe Chow.
