- Live animals and free crafts, popcorn, and hot chocolate! Lots of things for the kids to do. Free family picture. Great presentation of the gospel in a large heated tent
- We went last year and thought it was neat thing to do with the kids! They enjoyed it!
- This is my favorite family tradition. We went for the first time last year and my then two-year-old loved it. Watching the live nativity skit under the heated tent really helped her understand the story of Jesus’s birth. She also loved the animals and activities in the Bethlehem village. They also give you a free family picture. Ours turned out cuter than our Christmas card. Great event and highly recommend it! We’re planning to bundle up and brave the cold so we can go tonight.
- My kids are 10, 2 and 1 and they all love it. The play is very moving and the Bethlehem village is fun. The animals in the petting zoo are very friendly. There is usually a sweet llama that my girls just brush and brush.
