Mary Alice Reporting – Over the next four days, a popular music festival is back at Atwood Lake.

Alive brings in a diverse lineup of musicians and attendees to Mineral City as thousands gather and the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District is reminding of a few safety tips, including staying hydrated with the warm weather outlook.

Communications Director Adria Bergeron says there are a few other things to remember for the public and guests for the Thursday through Sunday festival.

“There are a lot of people that are going to be coming into the park. A lot of people on the road. Definitely be patient. We do everything we can to keep the line moving to get vehicles in but we do ask that you be patient as people head in.”

The event, each night at the Main Stage, will feature speakers, who will deliver Gospel-centered messages. In addition, each morning, at the Woods Stage, worship will be led. Speakers include Jonathan Evans, Trip Lee, and Ben Stuart.

As for the musical talents, top liners include For King & Country, Tobymac, Skillet, We Are Messengers, Riley Clemmons, and Britt Nicole. More details about the festival or tickets can be found at

Bergeron adds that overall the park and beach area will not be open to the general public and will only be accessible to seasonal campers and those with a festival ticket. For anyone wanting to walk the trails beyond the Atwood Park welcome center, vehicles must be parked outside that entrance.

“Anyone who is attending Alive, no motor vehicles are permitted past the parking areas so everything is pedestrian traffic and that’s just to keep everyone safe who’s going to be walking on the paths and the roads to get to the amphitheater.”

She encourages anyone wanting to enjoy a hike, the beach, or other MWCD lake park amenities to consider visiting one of their other locations, such as Beach City Lake, Leesville, Piedmont, or Tappan. Details can be found at
