Live play and crèche display in Red Deer open to public

Event runs Dec. 20, 21 and 22

The annual outdoor live nativity pageant and large indoor crèche display is scheduled for Dec. 20, 21 and 22 in Red Deer.

The event, which is free to the public, is at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints building at 8 Keast Way.

Members of the church have have been performing the outdoor nativity pageant, depicting the birth of Jesus Christ, for many years.

As well, there will be hundreds of tiny nativity scenes or crèches inside their building. The performance and the displays are a free gift to the community and a way that parishioners celebrate the religious reason for the Christmas season.

“We’ll have about 300 crèches on display this year,” said Sabrina Lynn, co-chair of the event. The outdoor play runs about 20 minutes.

The play will be at 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. each of the three nights. Hot chocolate and cookies are also provided free of charge. All are welcome.
