The countdown has begun to The SOS FEST July 18-20 at Firemen’s Field, Rochester Street, Hannibal.
This is a large three-day Christian music festival with more than 15 bands.
There also will be some powerful speakers and more than two dozen display booths. There also will be free waterslides, and workshops on Saturday morning and afternoon. A kids carnival will be available during the workshops so parents can attend the workshops while the kids are busy.
The SOS FEST this year ends with the start of the Concert in the Park, so there will also be a softball game, duck derby and more bands.
