As soon as you enter the doors of the building, you have entered Bethlehem. More than 80 volunteers are dressed in clothing very similar to that era, and are acting as Jewish citizens, vendors and Roman soldiers. Upon arrival, a passport is handed out, then the task is to visit all the stations and receive a stamp. The impressive journey leads you around the town of Bethlehem, seeing the jewelry, food, metalsmithing, and animals of the time. The last stop is little baby Jesus, and his mother Mary, seated in the manger, beside the Inn that has no room. Don't miss the last weekend of The Bethlehem Walk.
Showings are Friday, December 10, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, Dec., 11, 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Over 700 visitors have been through, so far, with some driving from Edmonton to take in this great experience. The Bethlehem Walk is located in the fromer Three Hills Home Hardware Building Centre (Lumber Yard).
