Walk to Beth­le­hem this wee­kend

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

The Hud­son Com­mu­ni­ty Bap­tist Church will re-en­act the Ch­rist­mas story as told in the Bible this wee­kend and next du­ring an event that has be­come a ho­li­day tra­di­tion for fa­mi­lies near and far.

The Walk to Beth­le­hem is an in­ter­ac­tive out­door jour­ney which casts guests as mem­bers of a fa­mi­ly hea­ded to Beth­le­hem to be coun­ted and to pay taxes. With she­kels tight­ly clen­ched in their hands, par­ti­ci­pants experience the sights and sounds of life as it was over 2,000 years ago. Cos­tu­med actors, mu­si­cians and live ani­mals com­plete the en­chan­ting experience.

Or­ga­ni­zers say more than one hun­dred vo­lun­teers work months to bring the event to life, while others bake ho­me­made goo­dies that are of­fe­red free along with cof­fee and hot cho­co­late at the end of the tour. Guests should dress for the wea­ther as much of the tour takes place out­doors.

Ad­mis­sion is free and do­na­tions to help co­ver costs are ac­cep­ted. All ad­di­tio­nal funds col­lec­ted will be do­na­ted to cha­ri­table or­ga­ni­za­tions in the com­mu­ni­ty. TheWalk to Beth­le­hem will be held No­vem­ber 26 and 27, and De­cem­ber 3 and 4. First tours be­gin at 6:00 p.m. each night with new tours lea­ving eve­ry 10 mi­nutes. The last tour be­gins at 9:00 p.m. For in­for­ma­tion, go to www.walk to­beth­le­hem.org or call 450 458-1945.
