The 21st annual Nativity Drive Through runs until Dec. 16.

The event takes place from 6-10 p.m. at Abbotsford Christian Assembly, 3970 Gladwin Rd.

The congregation joins together to provide the community with an experience showing the real meaning of Christmas. Visitors stay in the comfort of their own car and drive through the ancient Roman gates of Bethlehem into another time. Fellow travelers on their way to Bethlehem can be seen along with the Magi bringing gifts, shepherds and angels on the hillside, all on their way to see the Christ child.

Eleven nativity scenes are presented, complete with live actors and animals, special lighting and effects.

At the end of the journey, everyone can participate in the Christmas spirit of giving by donating a food item for the local food banks or the Salvation Army.
