Begun in 1920, this is the world's oldest on-going gospel singing convention. The day of praise opens with a prayer and continues all day with nine different gospel group performances. The park has picnic tables, plenty of shade, and a playground for the kids. Concessions are available, and you should bring a lawn chair for the most comfortable seating.

Directions: From I-81 take Exit 17 for Hwy. 58 Alt. Follow this for 50 miles and turn onto US 23 South. Follow Rt. 23 for 10 miles and enter into Big Stone Gap. Take Rt. 23 Business (Gilley Ave.) into town at Exit 1. Take a right on E. 5th St, and then a left on Wood Ave. Turn right on E. 1st St. This will become North Blvd., and the park is just ahead.
