Crowd packs park for 'historic' CityFest

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Thousands of people packed Ah-Nab-Awen Park in downtown Grand Rapids Sunday for the second day of CityFest West Michigan.

The Christian festival featured live music and shows, food and games for the kids. Sunday's lineup was headlined by evangelist Luis Palau, who worked with more than 400 local churches to make the event happen.

For lifelong Grand Rapids resident, Rhonda Miller, the event was an answer to decades of prayer.

“I (have) been praying for unity in our city over 20 years, 30 years maybe, and God is answering it,” Miller said. “Revival is about to hit this city like we never seen it.”

Miller’s excitement was shared by many in the crowd.

The total number of people who attended Sunday was not immediately released, but as many as 15,000 people attended the first day of the festival Saturday.
