Children 3 and under do not need a ticket.  Please RSVP to Veronica (540-226-6882, veronicastclaire@gmail.com) to secure your spot. Tickets are limited and will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. This is a great opportunity to invite unbelieving neighbors and friends as well. Please arrive at Keats Park (located 5 miles west of Manhattan) at 6:15 to be divided into two tour groups.


This event includes a cast of nearly 100 costumed people, live animals, and narration played out on a farm in the Flint Hills of Kansas. It begins for the guests as they arrive at the Welcome Center in Keats Park, Keats Kansas. There they will be met by hosts who will direct them into a heated building where they will be welcomed with hot chocolate, home made cookies, and live music. From the Welcome Center guests will take a short bus ride to the farm where their guide and his assistant will lead them on their approximately forty minute walk through the Flint Hills of Kansas. Come listen to Moses, David, Isaiah and others foretell the coming of the King. Walk through the crowded street of Bethlehem where vendors are oblivious to the momentous occasion of your visit. Come see the busy innkeeper and the young pregnant couple who were denied residence by him. Watch the angels tell good news to shepherds. Come witness the empty cross and the open tomb and hear the next chapter of the story.
