The Poteet Strawberry Festival grounds will be transformed this weekend, for the annual Christmas Village. The three-night presentation of Christ from birth to tomb is set for Friday, Dec. 1; Saturday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 3.
Visitors will step back in time as they find themselves entering the Gates of Bethlehem on the eve of our Savior’s birth. Experience the life of Christ and witness the greatest gift mankind has ever known, as told by your tour guide, the prophet “Isaiah.”
You will visit at least 30 scenes, such as the angels rejoicing in song at the coming of Christ’s birth and the angel Gabriel speaking to Mary about being favored by God. You will see over 200 different characters and animals.
The gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the tours start at 6 p.m. and depart about every 10 to 15 minutes. The complete tour is about 40 minutes. While you wait there will be a free petting zoo for the children. Enjoy live music and free refreshments.
Full dress rehearsal will be this Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. on the Poteet Strawberry Festival grounds. Remember that both speaking and non-speaking parts are available.
