Liberty Gearing Up for Winterfest

Lynchburg, VA - It's a busy time at Liberty University as they set up for Winterfest.

Liberty says it's the largest Christian New Year's Eve party on the East Coast.

As many as 8,000 people are expected to attend.

For the first time, millions can experience the event without being there.

The school is broadcasting Winterfest around the world.

The event will feature bands like Skillet, Third Day, and Audio Adrenaline.

The event will also feature speakers like the teenagers of "Duck Dynasty", John Luke, Saide, Cole, and Reed Robertson.

"We are going to start a lot of the set up throughout the weekend and throughout the night. Really just getting ready to accommodate the thousands of students and adults from all over the east coast that comes to Winterfest," Special Events Coordinator Matthew Hockensmith said.

Winterfest runs December 30 through December 31 at the Vines Center.
