Two Hundred and Fifty Nativity Scenes Featured in Special Exhibit

Normally, I do not like to leave Decatur.  However, a press release from the Church of the Epiphany describing their special exhibit of over 250 creches intrigues me.  My daughter collects nativity sets and I think we are going to have to check this out.

According to the press release, this is the 14th season that The Episcopal Church of the Ephiphany has presented an exhibit of nativity scenes from around the world, and over the years the exhibit has grown to over 250 creches.   Their description reads, “From the elegant to the eccentric, the birth scenes are sculpted in materials ranging from carved wood to volcanic ash.”  Check out these cool photos they sent also…

The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, November 26, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. & Sunday, November 27, 2-4 p.m.
Wednesday, November 30 – Friday, December 2, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Friday, December 2, 7 – 9 p.m.
Saturday, December 3, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. & Sunday, December 4, 2-4 p.m.

Admission is $5 for adults; $4 for seniors and students; children under 12 free.

The church is located at 2089 Ponce de Leon Ave. at the corner of Ponce de Leon and East Lake Road.  The entrance to the parking lot is off of East Lake Road.  Since the location is only about one mile west of Decatur, I think I can handle it!

And, of course, we’ll grab a bite to eat in Decatur when we’re done…maybe Farmburger where she can get a burger with a gluten-free bun or Leon’s Full Service where I can get fresh horseradish mayonnaise with my pub frites.
