Intern Sandra Out and About: Red Lion Alive! Outdoor Music Festival
This morning we talked with Dave and Susan from Red Lion Zion United Methodist Church about their upcoming first annual Alive! Outdoor Music Festival next Saturday and Sunday, June 22nd and 23rd.
The words “music festival” don’t do the event justice; the weekend is jam-packed with food, kids events, a craft show, a movie screening, and of course many wonderful artists. Susan told me how the church had thrown a small music festival a few years ago to benefit one of their congregation members, and about six months ago she started to feel called to put together a larger festival. After much hard work, the Red Lion Alive! Festival started to come together, and now the weekend is going to feature two full days of bands, activities, food and more! The lineup is quite diverse, including Derek Sandtrom, The Keystone State and Delta Road Singers, The Jazz Resurrection Project, Steven Courtney, Rainbow Puppet Ministry, Colleen Sherlock, Tim Storey Magic, and much more! There will be plenty of activities for the kids, including face painting, crafts, Bible stories and event finger nail painting. Dave and Susan are excited for the weekend, especially because there is currently no outdoor Christian music festival in York County. Admission to the entire event is free, and this festival looks like it’s going to be a blast! To get more information, including the entire lineup of events, you can visit redlionzionumc.org.
