WHERE – Bethany Church – 160 Lancaster Ave Kitchener (between Krug Street and Frederick near Centre in the Square area)
December 6,7,8th- 2013

This pageant really has it all and if you have not seen it, you should totally go. You will be amazed by the detail and effort this church puts into this show which retells the story of Christmas right from the bible. There is a cast of 145 volunteers wearing elaborate costumes and the show also features 40 live animals and a fantastic set and props. You actually feel like you are in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve watching the birth of baby Jesus.
This show is appropriate for anyone of any age and children in particular will be captivated by this incredible show. I know many local people who attend the show every year and have made it part of their Christmas tradition. Why not start a new tradition this year and check it out?
Some important details:
* Presented outside in our Church parking lot.
* Bleacher seating so dress accordingly
*Optional inside seating also available with live video feed.
* Refreshments to follow inside the church.
* Get there about 15-20 minutes before the show to get a good seat and the entire show lasts about 20 minutes.
