2) Looking for Free Performances for the Con

We are looking for performers who might be willing to perform for free at our family-friendly convention this summer. Basically, we have an hour for which we hope we can find some performers who would like to play music, juggle, dance, sing, stack cups, display magic tricks, or otherwise show their talents for fun and publicity. If you are interested, please let us know via our Facebook page or [ http://gam.rocks/contact/ ].
