Journey to Bethlehem - November 16 & 17 and 23 & 24, 2019
Join us in Fort Assiniboine as we travel back in time to the night Jesus was born. This is a FREE outdoor interactive dramatic performance that will guide you on a Journey to Bethlehem. What began as a simple request from a church member to their daughter has grown to the entire hamlet of Fort Assiniboine transforms to re-enact the journey Mary and Joseph experienced for the birth of Jesus. This show is offered completely free and is created, produced and acted by volunteers only. The community truly comes together to share this wonderful experience with visitors. Tours for "Bethlehem" leave every 8-10 mins from the Catholic Church in Fort Assiniboine. Starting place is the Catholic Church (first building on the right as you arrive in town) and ending with refreshments and snacks at the Friendship Centre. This is a free, exciting, outdoor event that everyone will enjoy. Make sure you dress warmly, this event runs regardless of the weather! Find this event on Facebook
