April 16 Easter Sunrise Service 7 a.m. Stone Mountain
Experience serenity and peace as the Stone Mountain Sunrise Association presents two simultaneous, non-denominational Easter services at the top of the Mountain and at the base of the Mountain on the Memorial Lawn.
The event began in 1944, before the land around Stone Mountain was officially owned by the State of Georgia. Lucille A. Lanford, from Stone Mountain First United Methodist Church, suggested that the church’s youth group climb to the top of Stone Mountain on Easter morning to watch the sunrise. The event grew from that one youth group to thousands ascending the mountain every Easter since. The event is produced by The Stone Mountain Sunrise Association. Both services will feature sign language interpreters for hearing impaired guests.
Time: 7:00 a.m. (Park Gates and Summit Skyride open at 4:00 a.m.) Please allow an extra hour or more for large crowds.
Tickets: Vehicle entry to the park is $15 for a one-day permit or $40 for annual permit. Church vans and buses enter free. Skyride fees are $12 for round-trip and $8 for one-way. There are no fees for the walk-up trail to the top of the mountain. For visitors staying the day, they can purchase the Adventure Pass for $31.95 plus for adults and $26.95 plus tax for children.
