The sights and sounds of Bethlehem Village in Afton will continue for one more evening on Tuesday – December 21, 2010. The recreation; “Takes you back in time as you enter the gates of Bethlehem of Judea. The Roman emperor has issued an order that a census be taken throughout the Empire and every citizen must register. On a cold winter’s night you are traveling streets illuminated by torchlight, wandering deeper into the heart of a village where cautious Roman soldiers patrol the crowd, Wise men, shepherds, livestock are among the many passersby, shops and shopkeepers inhabit a bustling marketplace, and welcoming cheer abounds. Now, far away from the tinseled trees and crowded malls that most commonly usher in the Christmas holiday season, this is an event no one should miss,” quoted from The Bethlehem Village website.

The village is complete with all sorts of animals one would have found in that time period, as seen here with Jr. Publisher, Adam Stafford.
