13th Annual Christian Cross Festival This Weekend

NORFOLK — The 13th Annual Christian Cross Festival is set to kick off this Friday evening at Skyview Lake in Norfolk.

The festival will begin on Friday evening and conclude on Saturday evening with a firework show. Anthem Lights, Moriah Peters and Aaron Trimble will be among the various music and speaking acts performing on the Coffee House Stage and the Main Stage. Prayer Coordinator Jeff Borer says this free event is put on solely for everyone to enjoy.

“It’s going to be a fun day for everyone, regardless of what your belief is. The original thought process in putting this festival together was to bring in all faiths, for a full day of enjoyment. And regardless of what your denomination is, just come out and enjoy everything together.”

Organizers expect thousands to make their way out to the event, but with temperatures expecting to be in the mid-90s, organizers remind attendees to stay hydrated and spend time in the shade.

“We also do have some shower areas that are going to be a misting place. There will be plenty of water available.”

In addition to musical performances, festival activities include kayaking, face painting, a kids tent and various food vendors.
