Praise in the Park is designed to encourage our youth through music and messages. We need you to come back to the park on Sunday and bring a child with you from your community. It's our goal to get over 2000 boys and girls in the park on Sunday to hear from motivational speakers from across the country and great gospel music for over twelve gospel groups and entertainers. We also encourage your class to bring back the grills, tents and chair to relax and enjoy each other on the final day of the festival.
