This family friendly event, will feature the Streets of Bethlehem and Live Nativity. Cast and Crew will be in costumes and character so that visitors may experience what it may have been like 2000 years ago. There will be live animals. Guests will be counted for the census, meet the tough Roman Guards, see beggars in the street, encounter the Tax Collectors. As fellow travelers on the journey, guests will hear the sounds of the marketplace and take in the aroma of the rich incense. Merchant shops include carpentry, textiles, bread, clay vessels, incense, herbs and oils. The Streets of Bethlehem temporarily close during the Live Nativity in honor of the story of the birth of Christ.
Excitement and friendship build among cast and crew as volunteers from near and far come together to share the reason for the season. The many involved view the event as an opportunity to bring perspective to the holiday for their families and for all who attend.
Families and individuals who desire a break from the hustle and bustle of a commercialized season, the nativity and streets of Bethlehem is your chance to step away in a peaceful setting, soaking in the true meaning of Christmas.
