An international collection of more than 700 nativities will be on display in Carrollton at the Community Nativity from Nov. 30 through Dec. 2.
This is the 13th year the Carrollton Texas Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has hosted this event and made the unique and varying nativities available to all the community for free.
This year’s collection of nativities will include sets from Mexico, Peru, Canada, Mongolia, and Japan. Some of the nativities are made from corn husks, clothing pins, Legos, yarn and varying metals. The entire collection of nativities is on loan for display from numerous community members in Lewisville, Carrollton and Coppell.
Local residents who attend the event have made it a part of their Christmas tradition. The event is family friendly and the Church has guided and self-guided tours available at the door. There is also an I-spy game for children as well.
The Community Nativity is located at the Church at 4000 Nazarene Drive in Carrollton. There will be musical performances taking place throughout the three-day event from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 30, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Dec. 1 and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Dec. 2.
