A nativity scene complete with wise men, shepherds, alpacas, horses and more was tucked away just off Grant Avenue in Auburn Saturday night.
Performers and animals were out for the Living Nativity event all over the Auburn Alliance Church parking lot. Passersby could see and interact with the different stations set up either by car or by foot. Around 50 volunteers were involved in the event for various duties, ranging from performing to making hot chocolate for those outside to handling the various farm animals.
At one point people in a car waved at Earl Brown and Mickey Brown, who played biblical figures Mary and Joseph, respectively, and Mallory Brown and Avery Koch at a re-creation of the manger where Christ was born. Mallory and Avery — dressed as angels and armed with cups of hot chocolate — were watching after a calf. Avery's mother, Alisha Koch, was right next to the manger.
