Join us as we go back in time and take a walk through the village of Bethlehem as if it were the very first Christmas over 2000 years ago! Authentic food, activities for children, live animals, visit the shops, talk with the inn keepers, then see a live production about the night that Jesus Christ was born. From the moment you come in you will feel as if you are apart of Bethlehem.
Stop at the first building to talk with the guard. He will explain what to expect as you visit Bethlehem, where to exchange your money for mites as well as what you can buy with your mites, and then direct you to the census taker.
Afterward when you are leaving Bethlehem, stop at the largest Giving Tree in the Northwest and pick up an ornament. Each ornament has a child in need from our local area and something they’ve requested for Christmas. Bring back your tag with the gift item to AutoSource from 9am to 7pm Monday through Saturday and they will deliver the gifts to each family or organization for Christmas. Please return gifts and tags by the final event on December 22nd.
This is a FREE non profit event benefitting local charities, organizations, and families in need. All cash proceeds from the events will be donated to CASA Court Appointed Special Advocates of North Idaho. Other charities and organizations include Spokane Children’s Hospital, Newby Ginnings, and Family Promise.
Bundle up and bring the whole family out to share the true meaning of Christmas with our community. Stop by for the interactive walk through Bethlehem between 3pm and 6pm and the production shortly after is from 6pm to around 6:30pm.
