Modesto-area bands Divided We Fall and The Kinzie Affair are among the leaders as the "Taste of Talent" contest to find an act for the Stanislaus County Fair draws near to the voting deadline of 5 p.m. Friday. Also among the top 5 vote-getters so far are the duo Alexandra and Bianca, the Christian band Soul Remedy and solo singer Paul F. Line.
In all, 14 acts are vying for the opportunity to perform Thursday evening, July 22, on the fair's Cencal Beverage Co. Center Stage.
That's Kids Free Night at the fair, in which children ages 12 and under will be admitted at no charge. It's also the night when the popular group Boys Like Girls will perform on the Budweiser Variety Free Stage.
