The Light was Bright on FEST day!!
FEST 2018 was an amazing day. The sun was bright (and hot)!
Thousands and thousands of people joined us for a great day of faith, family and fun. You could see, hear and feel the “light” of the Lord at The FEST.
Special thanks to all who joined us. Great thanks to all of our sponsors who made this day possible for all of us. Thanks to God for all who supported The FEST raffle helping us keep this day FREE and open to all.
Take some time to watch the latest FEST videos. The first video from Black Valve Media showcases some highlights of FEST day.
The FEST challenged everyone to Be the Light. Imagine if each of us would do little acts of kindness – light – over the next few weeks. Together, we would bring the LIGHT and LOVE of the Lord to our entire region. Share your best ‘light’ stories/pics at www.theFEST.us/light.
God bless you. Thanks to our 1,400 volunteers and FEST team for making this amazing day possible. See you next year on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at The FEST.
