Go back in time to a stable in Bethlehem where the baby Jesus was born on that first Christmas day. The scene is complete with Mary and Joseph, the baby Jesus, angels, shepherds, wise men and even a few live animals.

You won’t really be back in Bethlehem, but the atmosphere will feel like you are there, at least for a few minutes, while you partake of the spirit of the season at the annual Live Nativity scene at the Orofino City Park as part of the Christmas Festival activities after the parade on Friday, Dec. 3.

Anyone interested in participating by either helping with setup/take down and cleanup or participating in the nativity is encouraged to call or message Michelle Lanman at 208-786-2447. There are no speaking parts and no formal practices prior to the presentation.

If you are unable to help with the nativity, organizers hope you will stop by and enjoy the presentation.
