Journey to Bethlehem

Yep, that's my daughter and I at last year's event.

Hello everyone. It's that time of the year, and my church has built Bethlehem in our church parking lot, and yours truly and one of his intrepid daughters will be participating once again as shepherds as we give praise to our Lord and Savior.

So, come experience the Christmas story in an interactive town. 
It is a hands-on experience for you to walk through the city of Bethlehem during the time of Christ's Birth. 
This town has a cast of over 150, live animals, music, dancing, wares, trades to try, a petting farm, and a visit from the angels.

I would like to invite your entire family and friends to come and tour Bethlehem.
Admission is FREEE, in fact- they give you a handful of shekels to spend in town. 
Reservations are not needed and groups are welcome. 
Please dress warmly since this is an outdoor event.

3 Nights in MB and 2 in Bellflower (5 nights total):
Manhattan Beach - Dec. 5-7 (6-9pm)
1243 Artesia Blvd., Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Bellflower - Dec. 13 & 14 (6-8:00pm)
17456 Downey Ave., Bellflower, CA 90706

Its Amazing, You don't want to miss it!!!

Sounds like good fun. Wish I were going to be in town so I could bring the family by. Maybe next year. Have fun, and have a Merry Christmas!

Great costumes :)

Cheers for the Bethlehem crew! I wish I could come, Marcelo - I'd love to experience that. Here, we're doing our own Christmas play as well - I'm costuming again, am currently trying to finish the costume plot -desperately- and get ready for the Lord of the Rings symphony at the same time...all manner of insanity here.

Will update all of you via email soon, and I have resized the photos I took for you so you'll have 'em soon!


Shuku said...

Oh yes. PS: You have been tagged. On my blog. Blame Chris Deboda for this one. ;)


C.Deboda said...

Also, this looks like a good event. have fun.

So glad to find your blog! Its a real treat too to see a fellow artist in the industry praising God.
I hope Bethlehem went off well and pray you all have a Merry Christmas!

I remember how much we wanted to go to this when we lived in LA and you told Seth about it. We were so bummed when our family got the flu and we couldn't. It sounds wonderful. We went to one 5 years ago at Seth's parents' church. What a great way to celebrate Christmas. Congratulations on celebrating your daughter's 8th birthday. You're right. It's so special to celebrate a baby being born this time of year. I feel so lucky.
