Creche tn SMIRNOFF (8).JPG

A sampling of the nativity scenes on display at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last year.

What better way to get in touch with the true meaning of the season then viewing nativities from all over the world, listening to music of the season performed, and enjoying the peace of the live nativity?

This is a free community event that will be held Dec. 14 and 15, from 3 to 8 p.m. on both days. In addition to the Live Nativity, there will be upward of 100 or more nativities on display in conjunction with performances of music of the season. A children’s activities room is also available (must be accompanied by an adult).

Everyone is invited to display their nativities for all to enjoy. The inspiring music of the season is provided by local school and church choirs, soloists, individual musicians and groups. Last year, Aaron Perlman from our local Fox affiliate performed and we are hoping that he returns this year. There are 30-minute slots available for all performers.

The Christmas Creche Festival will again be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 600 Anita Drive, in Tehachapi. Please contact Janet Vickers at 916-5778 if you are interested in participating by displaying your nativity(s), being part of the live nativity, performing musically or helping out.
