On Saturday, September 25th, Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, NC will host a Rock the Fort Concert, an event that is put on by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It is a FREE event, designed for families, and open to the public, with activities scheduled for the entire day.
Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, NC are home to thousands of military and Department of Defense civilians and their families, and most all of them have been deployed or are in direct support of the War on Terror. Rock the Fort is one way to say thank you to all those people who risk their lives in defense of our nation, and a great way to celebrate that many of them are now coming back home to Fayetteville, NC and Fort Bragg.
The music scheduled includes Hawk Nelson (Rock - video "Zero" here,) Jason Crabb (Southern/Country/Bluegrass - Check out this video "Somebody Like Me") and God Rocks Ministry. Josh Holland is the Guest Speaker.
Here is a brief summary of the events:
- 12 -2 p.m. - Food Vendors, Kiddie Land, Children Fun Tent
