Immanuel Lutheran Church in Clifton hosted its second successful Drive-Through Nativity in Clifton last weekend. More than 150 vehicles had stopped by with an hour to go, with more attendance overall than last year. Pastor Brian McQuiggin passed out Christmas gift bags after the scene, and many other scene actors took part.

From Augustus Caesar to Mary, Joseph, live camels, a miniature Brahman cow, donkeys and more greeted eager attendees that waved and listened to the story of Jesus Christ from beginning until the end from the comfort of their vehicles.

Augustus Caesar was featured in a grandiose fashion, encouraging passerby to render and pay their taxes. Praetorian Guards served as personal bodyguards to Caesar during this period of history, not letting any vehicle pass without assurance that their taxes were paid.

Many stopped in to celebrate the first story of Christmas, with classic scenes like the market in Bethlehem, the manger scene under the Star of Bethlehem, Gabriel visiting Mary, and even the Crucifixion.

The cross was heavy, and a few actors played the role of Jesus during the event.

Of course, in the next scene, Jesus rose from the grave in three days’ time.

The depiction of Christ rising from the grave and removing the stone door to the tomb.

The market was full of vendors selling wares, including bread, pottery, livestock and more. The event was immensely popular, with a line that continued through the event’s end.
