Sat-Sun (Dec. 9-10, 2023) Noon-5PM The 39th reenactment of the Bethlehem Marketplace at Southeast Baptist Church (708 Minerva Dr.). The Marketplace is a FREE walk-through drama re-enacting how the village of Bethlehem might have appeared the morning after the birth of Jesus. Its atmosphere and surroundings are those of 2000 years ago. It features characters in historical costumes such as Roman soldiers, prisoners, tent makers, weavers, merchants in shops, census-takers, and more. Live camels and other animals lend authenticity to the re-enactment, and twenty-first century items do not appear.
While you are waiting your turn in the sanctuary, you will be entertained with Christmas music from local school choirs, groups, individuals and videos.
