LUBBOCK, TX – The Lubbock community will once again kick-off the Christmas season by gathering for the South Plains Nativity Nov. 30 through Dec. 3. People of all faiths will gather for this four-day, non-commercial Christmas celebration featuring music, original art, and hundreds of Nativity scenes.

This year’s Nativity will feature all the same exhibits as in past years, and will also include the addition of several live Nativity reenactments. And for the second year, the Nativity will feature the “His Hands” exhibit created by local artists David and Sara Lindsay. “His Hands” consists of an arch containing panels of paper cut-outs of children’s hands, each representing an act of service from an area child.

“The Nativity serves as a symbol of the true meaning of Christmas and the importance of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ,” said Cynthia Cox, director of this year’s Nativity. “There is no better way for the Lubbock community to come together than joining our faith in celebration of the message of hope that Christmas provides.”

Music will once again be a large part of the Nativity event. Many churches, community organizations, and school musical groups featuring performers of all ages will provide live music for the entire four-day exhibit, with evening concerts held from 7-8 p.m. each night. The Nativity will culminate Sunday night with a broadcast of music by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

The exhibit will also feature a Children’s Room, where children can visit Joseph’s workshop and make a craft. Children can play with child-friendly nativities, and make a memory by taking a picture dressed up in traditional Bethlehem costumes.

Because of the dedication of community volunteers, the Nativity is free and open to the public. Hours are 1-9 p.m. daily from Thursday, November 30 through Sunday, December 3 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse located at 7014 Frankford Ave. in Lubbock. Parking is free, nothing will be sold, and donations will not be requested or accepted at any time during the event.
