HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Joe Davis Stadium was packed Tuesday night as people celebrated the festive season.

Willowbrook Church held a service Tuesday, inviting the entire community to join in for the free event.

Folks gathered several hours before the service and tailgated together with hot chocolate and barbecue – anything to warm up in the frigid temperatures.

While everyone had a good time at the event, eating food and socializing, attendees said there is a much deeper meaning.

"I decided to come because I heard it was great, and I hear a lot of people decide to give their life to Jesus," said one attendee.

"It's the true meaning of the season," added another.

Organizers of the event said they plan to hold it again next year.
