Outdoor Living Nativity
The Living Nativity has been a yearly tradition ever since Redeemer Lutheran Church first presented it to the community of Bayside, Queens, in 1964. Performed nightly (7:30 pm) on the church lawn at 36-01 Bell Blvd. for two consecutive nights––this year December 17 & 18––approximately 30 members and friends of Redeemer, ranging in age from grade school to adult, along with a donkey and sheep, appear in the free 20-minute pageant, as they walk through the narrated story of the birth of Christ Jesus. Following the performance the audience is invited to meet the animals and to come in for hot chocolate.
