Critter Barn Nativity

We love to go visit the Critter Barn, especially for the live nativity.  When the sheep, cows and other animals are in the stable with Mary it makes the story come alive.

You start seated on benches viewing pictures of the area.  Where shepherds lived, the caves they used for a stable.  A Shepard girl tells you her events on Christmas with the angels visit.  Then you are ushered into the live nativity area.

The little ones love to pet the sheep and hold the Baby Jesus.

Afterward you are free to wander the barn yard visiting the other animals.  Daughter pet goats, sheep, a pony and many rabbits.  There were baby chicks to view and many cats to visit.

The Critter Barn is by donation and this a great gift for the community to offer a live nativity.

    Have been looking for a live nativity since we moved here two years ago. Just mapped this one and it is only 45 minutes away! Thank you!
