For the fourth year, the Old Morgan Barn in Nibley will transform into the humblest of scenes for three evenings in December as volunteer actors depict the birth of Jesus Christ as told in the King James Version of the Bible.
The Living Nativity is put on by farm manager Richard Eversull, and about 90 volunteers who dramatize the scene, tend to animals and fires, serve hot chocolate, provide hay rides and sing carols.
The event is made complete with sheep, donkeys and a friendly camel named Moses, who looks on as visitors stroll through the historic barn and pause to contemplate their beliefs. Outside the barn, visitors can enjoy hay rides, the sounds of carolers and the warmth of a fire and hot chocolate.
The event is open to the public Friday, Saturday and Monday, December 12, 13 and 15 from 5 to 9 p.m.
Admission is one can of food to be donated to local families through the Cache Food Pantry or $2 a person ($10 a family), however Eversull states that those who cannot afford to pay should, “Come anyway! All are welcome.”
The Morgan Farm is located at 800 West 2800 South in Nibley.
