This event has been produced and directed by Virgilio Marcianó.
Experience Christmas based on its true meaning at this community event that spreads the Christmas message of joy, peace and goodwill to all. In this small town of Bethlehem/Epping, you'll find a population of spinners, weavers, blacksmiths, carpenters, potters, bakers and people of other ancient crafts and trades. Young shepherds will be tending to all types of domestic and farm animals, while the Romans are ever present. The streets will be patrolled by Centurions, and guards will watch over the palace of King Herod. Watch out for the Three Kings from the East on their camels, bearing gifts. The focal point is, of course, the stable with Mary, Joseph and their baby Jesus.
A highly successful event, it's generally visited by thousands of families and has received local and national news coverage on all commercial television networks, and the ABC on Christmas Eve. It's an attraction set to continue for many years, due to public demand. This Christmas experience includes Christmas windows to look through, and of course Santas, sleighs and reindeers, complete with Christmas light displays. There's not another event quite like this.
The Christmas spirit this event brings is one that lights up the life and culture of our multicultural and multi-faith community. It's a way for our diverse community to unite with a common bond in a harmonious and inspiring way. It's a heritage of values that's well worth preserving and reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. This event also includes food vans, sausage sizzle and live entertainment for lots of family fun worth archiving. Stay updated and join the conversation via the Event Page and Facebook Page.
