Bethlehem in Burnet

I mentioned earlier that we went to a reenactment of Bethlehem in a town called Burnet. Here is a slide show with some pics.

It was really beautiful. The Baptist church there has built a huge "town" complete with characters in dress, shops, a marketplace, stables, "the" inn, and throughout the maze of streets you can see a large shining star leading you to the baby Jesus. This is a full scale structure that is only used 2 weekends a year. I was amazed.

It was dark and crowded and really hard to get good pics, but you can get the idea.
