Crowds gather around the live nativity performed by Laura Street Baptist Church members December 2 in the Westlake Hardware parking lot. Attendees were able to interact with the actors, pet the animals, enjoy refreshments and hear the story of Jesus’ birth.

Daniel McKim, portraying a wise man delivering gifts to baby Jesus, led his camel through the annual Christmas parade before heading to the stable for the live nativity production.
