Live Nativity pageant
If, for you and your family, Christmas is all about Mary, Joseph and the birth of the Christ child, you may want to venture to a barn northwest of Reynolds, N.D., to see a live nativity pageant, complete with costumed figures and animals such as cows, horses, goats and sheep.
Tonight is your last chance to see the pageant sponsored by Holmes United Methodist Church. The program begins at 7 p.m.
Led by the Angel Choir, you can join in singing Christmas music. Sleigh rides are offered before and after the pageant.
“It’s incredibly special,” said the Rev. Sheri Fadley, the church’s pastor. “Some families travel long distances every year to see it -- it’s an active drama.”
The barn is 9 miles west and 2 miles north of Reynolds; the address is 221 22nd St. N.E., Reynolds. The barn is not heated, so guests are asked to dress appropriately.
