Paint the Town Red Birmingham

On Saturday night downtown Birmingham was transformed into a giant art scene.  Paint the Town Birmingham is a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.  Various art scenes were projected on building walls all throughout the area.  Several bands and performers also entertained the crowd throughout the night.  The centerpiece was a giant white dome that projected various scenes onto it.  Enjoy the photos and video below from this great event!


Rainbow City Chocolate Festival

Another event I covered on Saturday was the Rainbow City Chocolate Festival.  This festival featured carnival rides, bands, vendors, chocolate milk chug off, egg toss, bake-off, and a huge chocolate fountain.  This was the festival to be at if you are a chocolate lover.  They were also giving way numerous amounts of chocolate throughout the day.  So enjoy the pictures and video of this foodie event.  And don’t be surprised if you crave some chocolate after this post!

Walking With A Cross

The youth group from Life Church Assembly of God in Rainbow City walked up and down Steele Station Rd. from Rainbow City to Steele for 33 miles over three days to raise funds for Speed the Light.  Kevin Lewis; the church’s youth minister has two reasons this group did the walk.  One is to help young people relate to what Jesus experienced as He carried His cross, and to raise money for missions through Speed the Light, a national program of the Assemblies of God.

Speed the Light provides technology equipment such as computers, cameras, camcorders, and other equipment to missionaries around the globe.  The youth group just started the walk down Steele Station Rd. on Saturday morning and one is carrying a huge wooden cross on wheels down the road.  Each person participating had to raise funds through sponsorships.  Enjoy the photos below; and come back for more photos and videos of all the events I covered on Saturday.
