Annual Drive-Thru Nativity
For the 12th year, Community Christian Church of the Foothills is presenting its Drive-thru Nativity Scenes for the public.
Cars are directed to slowly drive through a path that showcases various scenes of the nativity story, including live actors portraying Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, the angel, and wise men. Each year approximately 2,000 people view the two-day presentation that is offered free to the community.
Free coffee, hot cocoa and cookies are available at the end of the drive in the church’s coffee house. If the visitors choose, they also have the opportunity to enter a special prayer area to meet with church members.
The Drive-thru Nativity Scenes take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8. The event is part of Community Christian Church of the Foothills, 10193 Tujunga Canyon Blvd. in Tujunga, just north of Foothill Boulevard.
