TobyMac headlining Friend Fest

NAPPANEE — Summer is here, which is nice for outdoor events, but especially for one extravagant event set for later this month – a concert featuring Christian artist TobyMac and 21 other performers. 
The WFRN Friend Fest of this year is scheduled for Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22. 
Those in Nappanee will be closest to the location, but it is an event that many people have gone to in the past and will again attend this year.
Music often comes with the season of summer, and that is why the WFRN Friend Fest will be quite a hit in the Marshall County area.
Not only is this event going to contain talented Christian artists, it will also be an entertaining attraction for younger kids.
The musicians will have the center of attention most of the time.
However, there are 22 performers.
A few of the singers who will be there, including TobyMac, are Matthew West, Big Daddy Weave and Kari Jobe.
