JESUS IN THE CITY September 8, 2012


What is Jesus in the City?

he Jesus in the City Parade is a live musical street pageant of worshippers and paraders costumed as biblical characters opening the Bible through the arts and worship. Floats staging live bands and choirs move along downtown streets. Banners of the books of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation are raised as participants wearing colorful parade T-shirts sing and dance spreading the message of hope, love, peace and joy of salvation.

Thousands enthusiastically celebrate and worship on the streets once a year at the Jesus in the City Parade, sponsored by Festival of Praise International.

Bring the entire family for a day of fun, fellowship and worship as we lift up the name of Jesus in the City.
