HUNDREDS ARE AT Farley Hill National Park as the 25th Gospelfest Barbados comes to a climax.

They spilled from in front of the stage all the way into the trees and up the hill, to enjoy the gospel in song.

Many families made it a day out, packing Sunday lunches to enjoy at the venue.

The annual marquee event began around 2 p.m. and so far performers Vanessa Briggs, De Furnace, Axia, Gary Bynoe and Sherryann Maughan have taken the stage.

Still to come are Barbadian acts Naycha Kid and John Yarde. (TG)
