Organizers of the Annual Trek to Bethlehem are getting the word out about this year’s event.
This year will be the 27th Annual Trek – it’s happening December 7th starting at 6pm.
It all begins at the Bala Community Centre where doors first open about 5pm.
Organiser Pat Gidley says it will be a beautiful evening…. (Above audio)
Here’s what you can expect that evening:
The trek takes you to the various scenes of the original Christmas story where you will meet its characters, including the wise men, angels and tax collectors, culminating at the manger scene.
The trek takes about 40 minutes to walk through, but you can expect over an hr wait before you head out from the centre where there will be entertainment.
Gidley says to arrive early if you have young children. The line up is less at 8pm.
Organizers keep the story simple and don’t embellish it, but Gidley says new actors do lend subtle differences to their roles each year.
Gidley adds that it’s an awesome evening and a great way to start your Christmas celebrations.
