What you need to know if you go

        • Today's service: 7-9 p.m. The Rev. Billy Graham speaks. NFL running back Shaun Alexander, a Boone County native, offers his Christian testimony. Music by George Beverly Shea, Third Day, the Gaither Vocal Band and Cliff Barrows directing the mission choir.

        • Forecast: Sunshine and temperatures in the high 80s. Beware of high humidity.

        • Traffic: Tonight's service could be the biggest of the four-day mission. Expect downtown and interstate backups. Taking the bus may be the easiest way, and Metro and TANK buses have special routes (;

        • Searches: Leave umbrellas, coolers, strollers and pocket knives at home. Security guards and police officers will conduct visual inspections, although they may search any suspicious person or item.

        • Severe weather: The mission will go on unless severe weather hits. Then stadium and Graham representatives, along with fire and police officials, will determine what action to take, from moving people into the concourses to canceling the event.

        • Other tidbits: Dress lightly and drink plenty of water. Although no other food or drink is allowed, people can bring in bottled water. Stadium concession stands will be open.

        • Coverage: Turn to Cincinnati.Com for continuous coverage — before, during and immediately after tonight's service.
