There is an unusual and exciting event coming up in our area. It is a non profit event put on by a priest who picks someone new each year to host the event. Then relies on volunteers in that community to come together and present the event. The priest has a truck full of costumes and props that he delivers to the new location each year.
However, it wouldn't start this year so he had to have it towed to the new location!
He insists on free admission, relying solely on the money brought in from selling the wares in the "Bethlehem market" to cover expenses and create funds to keep the production running year to year. He says things always work out.
Bethlehem Revisited is an indoor experience.
Dec. 30 – 1pm to 7pm
Jan. 5 – 10am to 4pm
Jan. 6 – 1pm to 7pm

Fr. Jim Kramper of St Peter De Alcantara Parish in Ewing, NE, is coordinating a reenactment of the streets of Bethlehem from the days of Jesus. This will be the sixth of its kind, but the first in this area. This non-denominational event, on Dec. 30, Jan. 5 and 6, will be located near Dakota City on the Leo and Evonne Kramper farm. The public is invited to experience activity similar to that seen by the Holy Family, bringing a better awareness of their lives. Merchants will line the aisles set up inside the Kramper's heated farm shed. Many types of goods, such as pottery, bread loaves, baskets, candles, and wood items will be available for purchase. Volunteers play the roles of many different characters such as: the Holy Family, merchants, soldiers, wisemen, shepherds, and parking attendants. If you have any questions you can contact Leo at 402-987-3254.
