Nativity sets from South America, Africa, the Middle East, and other places around the world will be on display December 5th and 6th at the 17th annual Nativity Exhibit and Music Festival at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kingwood.
Poinsettias, Christmas trees, live music by local community and school performers, lights and a Bethlehem backdrop create a memorable Christmas setting for guests to tour the hundreds of stunning nativity displays. Visitors are also invited to participate in the hands-on child-centered activities, view quilts and other displays, and dress up for a festive holiday photo in era-costumes that are provided (bring your own camera!).
“The Nativity Exhibit and Music Festival is a gift from members of the Church of Jesus Christ of to the community each Christmas season. This beautiful event expresses our love and reverence for the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ,” says Jamie Johnson, the Public Affairs Director for the Church in the Kingwood area.
Volunteers spend hundreds of hours preparing for the exhibits and music, but the effort is worth it as over 1,000 community members participate in the festival annually. “This is an event for everyone of all ages,” says Johnson. “It is a magnificent way to capture the Spirit of Christmas as you begin your holiday season.”
