The tenth annual The First Christmas drive-thru living nativity will open December 7, 2018 with performances from 6:30pm-8:30pm on the grounds of Hylton Memorial Chapel, 14540 Potomac Mills Road, Woodbridge, VA. This event is presented by The Worship Center of Woodbridge, VA.
In what continues to be one of the region’s favorite Christmas destinations, this family-friendly, live drama recreates pivotal moments surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ in vivid detail with stunning effects, cast, ornately crafted costumes, and elaborately decorated sets. Camels and other animals add life filling the panoramic six-scene narrative of the near 100 mile journey Mary and Joseph experienced leading to Bethlehem where God entered the world as a baby. The production includes favorite songs of the Christmas season.
Voted Best of Prince William by InsideNoVa, The First Christmas is preparing for the anticipated attraction of more than 10,000 visits representing individuals, families, groups, and buses. The drive-thru event also has generous parking so the viewer can linger and kindle thoughts about Gabriel’s announcement to the Virgin Mary, the marketplace in Bethlehem, the innkeeper’s dilemma, the shepherds keeping watch in the field, the Herald Angel, the Magi’s trip by camel, and the grand finale at the manger. Guests are invited to walk scene from scene, too.
Admission is free. Visitors are recommended to arrive early.
