A live Nativity scene will be at the funeral home. And horse and wagon rides will be available.

Before the celebration at 5 p.m. a free chili supper and a silent auction will be held at the Walton fire department at 11 High School Court. At the Walton Library at 21 S. Main St. dulcimer music will be played from 6 to 8 p.m.

Live Nativity scene

ERLANGER - A Kenton County Christmas tradition continues tonight with the 10th annual live Nativity scene at St. Barbara's Church, 4042 Turkeyfoot Road.

The scene will be staged nightly for the next week from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tonight features a special ceremony and procession reenacting the Holy Family being turned away at an inn and settling in a stable for the birth of Jesus, said church member Don Wildeboer.

The ceremony begins tonight after 5 p.m. Mass.

As he does every year, parishioner Bill McGrath will provide live animals and oversee the event while church members play characters in the Nativity scene. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served. The event is free but donations are accepted and will be given to the St. Vincent De Paul Society.
