Swithin Dick, from Littleton, waits in line at 4:30 a.m. for the 68th annual Easter sunrise service at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Hundreds lined the stairs leading to Red Rocks Amphitheatre as they waited for gates to open for the traditional Easter sunrise service at 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

By the time 5 a.m. arrived, the park was inundated with thousands of worshipers making their pilgrimage in the predawn gloaming.

The Easter services, put on by the Colorado Council of Churches, have been a tradition since 1947. The event now draws more than 10,000 people to the iconic amphitheater before the sun rises on the Christian holy day.
