KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -

Kingsport's Fun Fest Chair Lorrie Cooper says the 32nd version of the summer festival aims to get people more active and lead a healthier lifestyle.

"Almost a record number of new events this year," says Cooper, "a lot of them to keep people happy and have fun... we're focusing on getting up and moving, a healthier Tri-Cities, a healthier Kingsport, so we're doing a lot of healthy events."

Fitness enthusiasts can compete in a Twilight Triathlon: 150 meters swimming, followed by 9 miles biking, and a 3 mile run.

Other new events include a dodgeball tournament and a pool party at the new Kingsport Aquatic Center.

As usual, some big names from the world of music will entertain fans on the main stage at J. Fred Johnson Stadium this year, including Sandi Patty, Chicago, and Gavin Degraw.
