Tri-Cities only 'Living Nativity' show kicks off this week at Hillspring Church in Richland. Several thousand Tri-Citians are expected to see this magnificent annual event.

 Here's what you can expect: the local cast includes actors as Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, angels, Roman soldiers, majestic kings, and shepherd families. Live animals are also part of the cast including camels, sheep, cows, horses, and donkeys.

The Living Nativity journey begins inside before Jesus is even born, but be prepared to bundle up as the story concludes dramatically outside around the manger.

Here's the schedule:
