Work Continues For LifeLight Festival

June 3, 2010, 6:05 PM by Courtney Zieller

Work Continues For LifeLight Festival
WORTHING, SD - The Christian music festival LifeLight might be 90 days away but plans for the end-of-summer event have been in the works for months.

A big reason for that is LifeLight's move from the grounds of Wild Water West in Sioux Falls to donated land near Worthing.

What was once farmland next to the town of Worthing is now a sea of grass. That's because LifeLight organizers planted almost 230 acres in April to get ready for the big event Labor Day weekend.

"We are pretty excited about how things are progressing. A lot of work to be done," LifeLight's Alan Greene said.

That work began months ago. Besides booking bands and speakers, Greene says work outside is the main focus.

"The other side of it, which is so much harder, is really starting over, the infrastructure. The electrical, plumbing and getting the grounds ready and all those kinds of infrastructure things just require, well the timing has to work and having a lot of people involved," Greene said.

Crews are already putting down gravel and starting to set up the main stage. In August, crews will start setting up water and electric hookups for RV's. While a lot of jobs still aren't complete, Greene says rain or shine, the show will still go on Labor Day weekend.

"A lot of work in the next 90 days but we believe it will all come together," Greene said.

Just in time for weekend of worship.

LifeLight needs volunteers to help with other projects. If you'd like to help just call the LifeLight office at (605) 338-2847.
