Oakvue Farm Live Nativity coverage

The annual live nativity at Oakvue Farm in Bristol took place Friday.

The nativity had two performances tonight and has two more Saturday, at 6:30 and 7:45 p.m. This was the 21 year for the performance.

The nativity is shown in a barn and uses people acting out the various parts of the story of the birth of Jesus. Live animals also are used.

Here’s a video of highlights from the first presentation Friday:

A milestone was passed this year, as the farm was sold by Ed and Denise Gillmore to their son, Matt, and his wife, Jill. Here Ed Gillmore addresses the transition, including a trademark example of Ed Gillmore humor:

The nativity presentations are free to the public, though donations are accepted. Cookies and hot chocolate and hot cider are served afterwards.

Here are some more photos from the performance:

    Thank you to all that help us tell the Christmas story. It’s not about us but it’s about the Reason for the Season, Jesus’s birth. Thank you westofthei for all the publicty.

  2. Patrick says:

    I attended the Live Nativity at the Gillmore Farm and it was amazing. It focused on the most important part of the holiday. Our Savior’s birth. I wanted to thank the Gillmore family for keeping this great tradition alive and well!
