More than 60,000 people will fill Memorial Park this weekend for Hills Alive Music Festival. With that many people, the setup is no easy feat.
While the planning for the huge event takes at least a year, setting up happens in just a couple days. Volunteers arrived at seven this morning and will work throughout the day.
The festival also features a charity event called A Day in the Park, where families in need have the chance to pick up free food, clothes and shoes. Bryan Rice has been coordinating the event with the festival for the past five years.
"Well, you know, it's just fun to reach out and help others," says Rice. "We love this community and love to help people, and we love the people we're working with, so it's just been a joy."
Hills Alive is free and features big names in Christian music like Jeremy Camp and Audio Adrenaline.
