For 25 years now, people in Central Arkansas have been gathering together in Riverfront Park to observe Easter at sunrise. The service is ecumenical, which means it's open to all branches of Christianity.
Participants will include news anchor Donna Terrell, Gov. Mike Beebe, former Miss Arkansas Sharon Bale, former Razorback football player Anthony Lucas and singers from Philander Smith College, Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church and North Little Rock High School.
Offerings will be collected and the money will go toward the University of Arkansas for Medical Science's Cord Blood Bank of Arkansas. People are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.
