Hills Alive wraps up in Memorial Park

Posted:

The hills were alive in Memorial Park for the last time this year, as the Hills Alive Christian Festival wrapped up on Sunday at 10 p.m.

Tom Schoenstadt, general manager, says people began arriving with their tents and chairs at 4 a.m. to get a good spot for the music this weekend.

The event averages around 20,000, and this year did not disappoint.

Popular Artist Jeremy Camp headlined Sunday, and Schoenstadt says neither the construction at memorial park nor the quarter size hail yesterday kept people from going to the event. "We came here with one thing in mind, and that is to worship and focus on God and to be able to share great news with people that come down in Memorial Park," said Schoenstadt. "And the weather is not going to deter us."

Hills Alive is a free event, but it costs $370,000.

Hills Alive is paid for by corporate sponsors and donations. This year they expect to raise around $50,000 from donations.
