Although local singer Lauren Mink has opened a concert for the Pioneer Festival before, she is overly excited about opening the entire event which kicks off with the street dance.
Boyfriend Jon Curtis and local band JoJo Gunn will also perform.
The 22-year-old Winchester native has been performing at the festival since she was 13 and entered the talent contest in which she placed third.
"This was the first time I had ever played a guitar and sang in front of people besides in church," said Mink.
She has opened past Pioneer Festival concerts for Billy Currington and Rodney Atkins.
"I am really excited about opening for the street dance. This is something new for me, although I have attended the street dance since I was little," Mink said.
