This place is nice but it has so much more potential. The idea is brilliant. Nice to see homes, jobs, Shepard’s in costume and explaining what life was like during Christ’s lifetime.

The last time we visited was for the Passover/Easter pageant. It was well presented and very well attended. I recommend visiting for this and their Christmas programs if you can.
