Free SonRise Resurrection Pageant tickets will be distributed to community members March 18 at 6 p.m. in the Hamilton Place Mall next to the elevator on the lower level. Last year all 7,000 tickets were given away in 90 minutes.
The annual pageant portrays Christ’s last days with 500 costumed cast members, live animals, and dramatic sets. The one-mile walk-through event recreates six interactive scenes from the Bible. Started in 1996, attendance at this event ranges from 6,000 to 10,000 people annually.
SonRise is a collaboration of Southern Adventist University and the Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists.
It will take place on Saturday, March 30. Groups depart at 8:30 a.m. then every half hour until 2:30 p.m. Tickets are free, but required for everyone age 7 and up. No more than 10 tickets will be given to any single person, regardless of the church or group they represent. The event route is handicap accessible.
