Columbus, Phenix City team up for Revival on the River

COLUMBUS, GA/PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - There will be free food for thousands of people in the Chattahoochee Valley at an upcoming family event featuring inspiring music and a kid zone.

We spoke to Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson, who along with Phenix City's mayor will again be involved in Revival on the River's "Unity Night" on Friday, April 24.

The first 3,000 people get free Chick-Fil-A boxed dinners.

There will be a wide variety of music, including hip hop and local church groups.

Organizers say along with powerful prayers, the goal is for people from all walks of life to come together and help restore both cities.

"We'll see all spheres of the city revitalized as people come together, tear down racial barriers, religious and denominational barriers," said event organizer Andrew Chalmers.

"Unity Night is the Gospel Jubilee meets the world peace conference, it's a great way to come with your family, enjoy some wonderful entertainment," Mayor Tomlinson said.

Revival on the River's Unity Night will be held at the Phenix City amphitheater, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The revival will continue on Saturday, April 25 with an afternoon full of service projects all over the community.
