Flashlight - check, sleeping bag - check, bug spray - check, super cute cowgirl hat and crazy guitar sunglasses - check. If the word "camping" just popped into your head, you are correct! My family and about 20 others from my church are headed to the beautiful Allegheny mountain ranges of Western Pennsylvania to pay tribute to our Creator at the 2011 Creation Music Festival.
The Creation Music Festival is held annually at two different venues - one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. The 4-day festival, which has been a yearly tradition for the past 20 years, usually attracts over 70,000 people!
This will be me and my family's first Creation experience and while I am not much on camping anymore, I am quite excited about hearing all of the top Christian recording artists like Skillet, Chris Tomlin, Toby Mac, Third Day and dozens more! So, I figure it will be worth roughing it for a few days to spend some quality time with my church family and recharging my spiritual batteries!
Here is a short promotional video so you can get an idea of what Creation is all about. I am super excited to see Skillet's Jen Ledger perform her drum solo! I can barely contain myself. Woot!!
Have a super week!
