An annual tradition returns to Windmill Ridge Campground southwest of Kalona this weekend.

The Kalona Gospel Sing celebrates its 25th year beginning Friday, Aug. 24 through Sunday, Aug. 26.

According to festival organizer James Yoder, one of this year’s highlights will be the return of local gospel group Witness.

“Witness is the group that started the Gospel Sing,” Yoder said. “We’ve not sung together since 1998 or 1999. This year, most of the original members will be back and singing together.”

The Kalona Gospel Sing offers a wide variety of gospel performers, from acapella groups, to groups playing instruments and to groups that sing with soundtracks.

Some of this year’s featured performers include Damascus Road, Ambassadors of Grace, The Graves, the Sharon Bethel Quartet, Hear by Faith, Great Bluegrass Herons, Joyful Noyz and the Witness reunion.

The festival will run from 1-9 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Saturday; and 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., Sunday.
