STONE MOUNTAIN — Thousands of people turned out for the annual Easter sunrise service at a unique location: Georgia’s Stone Mountain.

WSB-TV reports that the crowd may have been kept down by rainy, windy weather. But many people still attended the 69th annual event on top of the mountain east of Atlanta.

Many worshippers showed up in coats and hats with chairs and blankets.

The service atop the giant chunk of exposed granite included songs, a sermon and prayers.
