Keeping it Cool at LifeLight

Keeping it Cool at LifeLight
WORTHING, SD -

LifeLight 2012 takes the stage in Worthing, South Dakota, Friday afternoon. It's the largest free Christian music festival in the country.

"We are excited,” LifeLight CEO Alan Greene said.

What started 15 years ago on two acres has now grown to 225 acres. And there's something for everyone.

"One-hundred-six bands, seven stages, all genres of music and again, it’s much more than music. There really is something for the whole family," Greene said.

Greene says it should be a great weekend for an outdoor concert. But a little preparation is never a bad thing.

"Most people when they come to a festival think outdoors. Bring lawn chairs, bring umbrellas; it’s not going to rain but want to keep the sun.  A lot of people put screen tents up way near the back; you can’t hinder the viewing here. But just think outdoors, sunscreen.  It may be the last great summer weekend here in South Dakota," Greene said.

You can bring water into the main stage area but no coolers. He says there will also be plenty of concessions on site.

With how dry it's been, fire danger is also on many people's mind.  But Greene says they have a great team that's ready for any situation.

"We have such a great risk-management crew.  We've been doing this for 15 years so I think we've got everything covered," Greene said.

He says the event is something that's looked forward to by many people each year and encourages anyone to come and have a good time.

“It’s a carnival, it's food, it's great music, great news. Just a little bit of everything for the whole family,” Greene said.

Gates open Friday at noon and runs through Sunday night.  You can find details on performances on the LifeLight website.
