This years Brentwood Idol was a success as they had a record crowd and 31-total contestants during the Sept. 5 event put on by the Downtown Brentwood Coalition. The Coalition also provided the $200 award which was split between the youth and adult winner. It’s estimated that over 400 people attended the event.

Although Brentwood Idol is the focus, the event had more than just singing. There was be a car show featuring 60 classic cars. The Tumble Time Bus, face painting, a bounce house and 15 vendors also were on hand to provide entrainment and shopping.

The streets themselves were decked in tables covered in linen and servers food to attended–this was so popular, more tables and chairs had to be set up to accommodate as attendance was higher than expected.

Kudos to the event organizers and the Downtown business’ for making this a fabulous night out.
