The Bald Knob Cross of Peace is replacing its fall cross walk event with a musical festival to celebrate the autumn colors in Alto Pass this weekend. The Fall Gospel Fest runs from noon until 5:30 PM on the 13th. It includes four gospel bands from Southern Illinois playing throughout the afternoon. The original Elle May Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies, Donna Douglas will give her Christian message and promote her children’s books. Bald Knob President D-W Presley tells KZIM KSIM there is no cost to attend. Presley says they’re excited to take delivery of their new lights within the next month and hope to fully illuminate the 110-foot cross by the end of the year. He says they will have a large tent set up in case of rain and 17th Street BBQ will serve refreshments. You can learn more at baldknobcross-dot-com.
