The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: This weekend, the weather is expected to be beautiful and with great weather always brings big crowds and that's what the organizers are hoping for in this year's Praise Power 1350 WLOU and the New Praize 104.7's Summerfest 2013 held in Chickasaw Park. Activities begin at 9:00 a.m. with a Praise Walk. The walk symbolizes all of the good things that's going on in your lives, instead of harping on the bad things. They are focusing on the blessings instead of hardships. They will walk to celebrate the "Good News" in West Louisville. There's also a tennis tournament, that begins at 10:00 a.m. There will be plenty of things for the youth to do at Summerfest. There's a kid's zone with inflatables, plus much more. If you like to eat, you can sample some of the best barbecue in town because there's a rib cook-off which will crown West Louisville's Best Chef.
Throughout the day on the main stage there will be local and national Gospel artists performing. Artists scheduled to perform throughout the day will be: Kurt Carr, Dottie Peoples, Wess Morgan, Jekalyn Carr, Jason Clayborn, Cheneta Jones, Anita Wilson, Lamar Campbell, Joe Leavell w/1Purpose, the Soulful Singing Sisters of St. Stephen and Bates Memorial Mass Choir.
Summerfest 2013 runs from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Chicaksaw Park in West Louisville.
