Christmas Village Ministry invites the public to the 2018 presentation of the Christmas Village, located at the Poteet Strawberry Festival grounds.

Event volunteers have transformed the festival grounds into the Holy Land during the time of Jesus. This year’s presentation of the Christmas Village will be on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 7, 8 and 9.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. each day, with the tours leaving every 8- 10 minutes beginning at 6 p.m. and it will take approximately 45 minutes to make the tour once started. If there is a wait period to get the tour underway, there will be a free Petting Zoo for the children, as well as some great local entertainment. Of course, there will also be free refreshments on hand.

A beautiful holiday tradition, Christmas Village has over 200 participants portraying the people of this most important time of Christianity. Actors for Christmas Village come from all parts of Atascosa County and the surrounding area, with many of our area churches participating.

It is not too late to be an actor. Come any night up to Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m., to the Poteet Rotary Club building at the Strawberry Festival grounds and event or- ganizers will get the right part for you.

Last year over 1,200 people toured the village and they are expecting another successful turnout this year. Start your Christmas season with a visit to the Christmas Village and make it a part of your Christmas season.
