THIS year's staging of Best Dressed Fun in the Son gospel festival and extravaganza will be held at Jamworld Entertainment Complex in Portmore, St Catherine, on Saturday, July 12.

"There has been a call from [Portmore] residents for the gospel festival to come to that community. So, this year, we decided to respond," said Dr Claudette Cooke, vice president of HRD & PR at the Jamaica Broilers Group.

Since its inception 11 years ago, the free-to-the-public event was held at King's House and Heroes Circle. It is sponsored by the Jamaica Broilers Group, through its Best Dressed Chicken brand, and produced by Glory Music.

The day's activities will include a children's village equipped with rides, fun and entertainment; an Extreme Sports centre fully loaded with BMX dirt bikes, ramps, demonstrations and high- energy performances, and spiritual ministry on the big stage from leading gospel ministers, including Andrew Palau.

"As we have been blessed at Jamaica Broilers Group, we want to be a blessing to others through this gospel festival," said Dr Cooke.

Over the years, Fun in the Son has seen performances from gospel artistes including Kirk Franklin, Papa San, Rev Gody Gody and Carlene Davis.
