Pathway Vineyard Church, located at 12 Foss Road in Lewiston, will present its fifteenth annual community Christmas event, “Nativity 2011,” beginning on Thursday, Dec. 8.
The church will open its Lewiston campus for a presentation of a new look at the familiar Nativity story. This year’s event, which has become a yearly holiday tradition for thousands of Central Maine residents, is filled with cultural music and drumming, drama, dance, and, as always, live animals.
Following the unique half-hour presentation, complimentary cider and cookies, caroling and an exhibit demonstrating “Christmas Around the World” await guests in the festively lit foyer. Draft horse wagon rides around the lighted Lewiston campus will also be featured along with a live petting zoo and an outdoor Christmas village.
The weekend event will continue on Friday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
As always, this event is open to all ages and is free of charge. Ample parking is available and doors will open a half hour prior to each performance. Those planning on taking the draft horse wagon rides are advised to bring warm winter clothing.
