Parkway Nativity Festival
My parents told us about the Parkway Nativity Festival that their church has put on for the last few year. They had so many nativity scenes setup from many different countries. I decided to take my kids and we really enjoyed it.
It was fun to see the nativity displays from around the world. Local families donated their nativity sets to be used for the festival and then each family picks them up at the end of the last day. These pictures are from last year, but they have a festival each year.
So many Nativities
Each nativity was so different. Small, large, and in between. They were all made from different materials. From Legos, to cloth, to fine hand carved wood or glass. They also made it fun for the kids to go around and check off their scavenger hunt check list as they found different things in the nativities like wooden camels, banana leaf nativities or leather nativity pieces.
Other activities at the Nativity Festival
They had a Nativity Costume Photo Booth and a Kid’s Craft Room. They also had apple juice, hot cider and cookies to snack on while watching a short Nativity film. We didn’t make it for a concert, but they did have nightly concerts at 7:00 p.m. and musical Entertainment throughout the day. This is a fun, free event that is open to all for a few days during the beginning of December.
