Marine Park’s got talent — at least, its kids do.

It got a little wet in Marine Park on Monday, but Mother Nature couldn’t stop the ninth annual Community Youth Showcase, where friends and family flocked to bask in the talent of the neighborhood’s most skilled tots and young adults.

“It thinned out a little after it rained,” said Marva Giron, who helped organize the talent show, “but the steel pan group performed after the rain stopped, and they brought a lot of the crowd back.”

It was standing room only over by Filmore Avenue in Marine Park, where kids from the elementary and junior high school put on 17 performances, showcasing talents ranging from singing and ballet to martial arts and weapon wielding.

“There was a martial arts performance from America’s Ultimate Martial Arts,” said Giron. “That was pretty awesome. They all did their own techniques, some had nunchuks, some had swords, and some did gymnatstics.”

PS 276’s steel pan group also deserves special mention, whose authentic Trinidadian steel drums and solid technique were enough to bring back those timid adults fleeing the evening shower.
