Rogers County residents won’t have to follow the Star of Bethlehem to find a babe lying in a manger this Christmas season, as Shepherd’s Cross will be hosting a Living Nativity beginning this December.
“We’re going to be staging a Living Nativity on site with an indoor, heated walk through the event, and complete with farm animals and costumed actors in character, under a gambrel roof barn at the farm,” said Dr. Diana Dickinson, owner, Shepherd’s Farm.
In addition to the Living Nativity, Shepherd’s Cross will be decorated for the Christmas holidays, with a Christmas light display, complimentary apple cider and cookies, a Christmas audio-visual program for the children, and Christmas musicians, to include either a violinist, flutist, guitarist, gospel musicians, quartets and/or cellists.
“Also, there will be original storytelling, from the perspective of the Inn keeper’s wife, and even from the viewpoint of the animals at the manger,” she said. “We’ve hosted this (Living Nativity) for more than 25 years, and every year is a blessing. We’re looking forward to another good year.”
Shepherd’s Cross Living Nativity walk-through tours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 7-9, and Dec. 14-16.
