Living Nativity & Pecan Festival

Shepherd’s Cross Living Nativity and Pecan Festival continues tomorrow — the final day — from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The Living Nativity is a walk-through event complete with animals and costumed characters inside a gambrel roof barn at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working farm, just north of Claremore.

Visitors will take a step back in time with demonstrations of spinning, weaving and wool working throughout the day. The event also includes children’s crafts and an audio-visual program. Apple cider and cookies will be served.

This year the Living Nativity will feature two drama performances: Elisabeth — the story of Christ’s birth from Elizabeth’s (John the Baptist’s mother) perspective; and The Inn Keeper’s Wife — the story of Christ’s birth from the Innkeeper’s Wife’s perspective. These will be offered every hour with Elisabeth being from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and The Inn Keeper’s Wife from 5-8:30 p.m.

This is pecan harvest season on the farm. Farm fresh native pecans will be available for purchase.

The event is available free of charge. Donations are accepted, and are tax-deductible. Suggested donation is $2 per person.

  • HIEHLE - Stop Signs and Red Lights

    Have you ever run a red light or stop sign? If you have, it was probably not something you meant to do or want to repeat. You didn’t mean to, but maybe you were distracted or focused elsewhere.
    Then, as you realized your error, your heart skipped a beat. Hopefully, an accident did not occur.
