Need some Christmas spirit? This event might be the thing for you
The annual trek in search of the perfect Christmas tree…
Game night with the cousins…
Putting out cookies and milk for Santa…Often it’s family traditions like these that help keep the Christmas spirit alive in us as we grow older.
Now in its fourth year, a new local event has been cemented as a must-do Christmas tradition: the Fremont County Nativity Celebration.
The Nativity Celebration is a non-denominational community event held at the LDS church on Elizabeth Drive in Riverton. The annual 3-day event is absolutely stunning for adults and fun for kids – and completely free!
Aside from viewing over 400 nativity sets from every culture and continent around the world, other activities include: live music (check out the schedule!), a scavenger hunt for the kids, a “Life of Christ” room, a Children’s Center where the kids can play and dress up like characters from the time of Jesus, a photo booth with backdrop and costumes – and great refreshments.
The initial idea was hatched by two locals, Amy Phister and Joanne Shane. from there the project grew into a major annual community event that brings together hundreds of volunteers and guests from all over the area.
You’ve got two more nights to enjoy the Fremont County Nativity Celebration. It will be open tonight, Friday, December 7th from 5 – 7pm and again tomorrow Saturday, December 8th from 10am – 7pm.
