Live nativity will feature goats, sheep and camels

Outdoor event will be presented by Barrington Baptist Church

Posted

East Bay’s only live nativity, a free and family-friendly outdoor event, will be presented by Barrington Baptist Church at 25 Old County Road for one night only on Saturday, Dec. 11, from 5 to 9 p.m.

The carefully-staged production recreates the story of Jesus’ birth through hand-crafted venues, period-costumed actors, and live animals including goats, sheep and, for the first time, camels.

Guests will be greeted by Roman guards taking the census and welcomed into a marketplace in Bethlehem. From there, guests will travel to the shepherds’ field with angels proclaiming the birth. Everyone will have an opportunity to sit and reflect at the nearby manger scene before being welcomed inside to see the Three Wise Men approaching the holy family’s home.

Christmas revelers are invited to stay for warm refreshments, Christmas crafts and cookie decorating. Families and friends can snap their photo in the photo spot as a memento for the evening.

Parking will be available on-site and overflow parking will be available across the street from the event. Details can be found at www.bbcri.org/christmas
