While the Christmas spirit is alive and well throughout the area, the sight of live camels grazing amidst shepherds and kings in the heart of Boardman was met with amazement by passersby.

Disciples Christian Church in Boardman hosted its second annual live nativity as part of a walk-through interactive journey to Bethlehem on Saturday, Dec. 3, with this year’s event including live animals.

Visitors entered the rear of the church, where they were given a gold coin with which they could pay a tax to enter the town of Bethlehem. Their journey took them to meet King Herod, witness live angels, visit with shepherds and the three kings, and, following a little interaction with the live animals courtesy of Dwayne Felger, come upon Mary, Joseph, and the newborn baby Jesus.
