On the Way to Bethlehem Nativity Pageant on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, November 25, 26 & 27, 2016 from 6:30–8:30pm. Held at Country Heritage Park, 8560 Tremaine Road, Milton. “On the Way to Bethlehem” is an outdoor Christmas Nativity Pageant. Arriving anytime from 6:30 until 8:30pm, visitors will enter the large reception area in Gambrel Barn, where they will enjoy the music of the mass choir. When ready, groups will travel the road to Bethlehem with a “guide.” On their 30–45 minute outdoor journey, visitors will witness King Herod’s court, interact with Roman soldiers, shepherds, magi, innkeepers and fellow travelers to reveal the Christmas story. At the end of their journey, visitors will follow a lamplight walkway to the refreshment area, where their “passports” will be stamped, and they can enjoy a warm drink and a cookie. When ready, they will be given a wagon ride to the exit. This is primarily an outdoor experience so it is important to dress warmly and wear comfortable walking shoes or boots. This event is a MACCWT production –www.onthewaytobethlehem.ca
