  • ‘It’s a great tradition’

    In the early dark, chilly hours of Easter, thousands of people filed into Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre for the venue’s annual sunrise service.

    Spotlights illuminated three on-stage crosses, casting shadows on the rocks behind the stage and welcoming those to the venue for worship.
