It's almost time for the 5 Annual Drive-Thru Live Nativity and be reminded of the real meaning of Christmas.

The live nativity scene is put on by the First Assembly of God. Upon entry into the grounds, located at 3401 West 7th Street in Texarkana, Texas, you will be greeted with Hot Chocolate and candy canes for the little ones. You will see animals: Sheep, Cows, Mules, Goats, Camels and more.
You'll see over 100 people in costume that will bring alive the story of Jesus' birth alive. The drive-thru begins as you enter the parking lot. You can tune your radio to a Specialized Radio Broadcast.
According to their Facebook event page, you will be required to take a census and pass your gold coin to the Roman Soldiers in order to gain entrance into the City of Bethlehem. When you drive through the Bethlehem Marketplace, you will feel as if you have stepped back into the pages of the Bible. Your Journey to Jesus will culminate with a beautiful scene of our Savior's Birth. All of this is possible without leaving the comfort of your vehicle.
This event is open to the public and free for everyone. Hours and dates of the Drive-Thru Nativity Scene is:Friday, December 7 from 7PM to 9PM
Saturday, December 8 from 6PM to 9PMPlease note the traffic directions that were used last year will again be used this year:

- There will be a Fast Pass Shuttle Service:

If you want to skip to the front of the line, they will provide a shuttle service to take you through the nativity.

* The Fast Pass Shuttle Service will meet in the Kmart parking lot and load up riders. Then we will shuttle the riders to the front of the line. Once the nativity route is complete, the riders will be returned to their vehicles at the pickup location.

* Fast Pass Shuttle riders will still get hot chocolate & every other experience of the nativity.

* 8 passenger vans and shuttle buses will be allowed to “fast pass” to the front of the line as well.

Their goal is to reach as many people as possible and reduce wait times. They also are encouraging carpooling, therefore less cars and shorter wait times.
