A WALK THROUGH BETHLEHEM
The main attraction of this year’s event will be “A Walk Through Bethlehem”—an immersive street theater recreation of Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born. Step back in time and walk the recreated streets of this tiny village to the night where one birth changed the world. This year’s live nativity will include 125 costumed actors ranging in age from 10 to 80 as well as live animals (camels, sheep, goats) on an expansive “first-century” set built right into the church’s central outdoor plaza and extending indoors. Hosted by a shepherd every ten minutes, a group of modern Bethlehem seekers will wind their way through the busy marketplace en route to finding the birthplace of the Messiah. Come, experience the real Christmas story.
