East Texans are Invited to "Bethlehem"

You are invited to 'An Evening in Old Bethlehem' Friday night in Angelina County. The 21st annual event starts at 6:00 p.m. at Lufkin's expo center.

Visitors can walk through a live nativity scene. It takes members of First United Methodist Church several days to get the display ready.

The two-night event involves 350 people who portray carpenters, bakers, blacksmiths, and other characters of old Bethlehem.

If you miss Friday night's nativity scene, you can catch it Saturday night from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A donation of 50 cents gets you in.
