On December 14, 2013, six Belen area churches teamed with Celebrate Belen, the City of Belen, and other local groups to present Follow the Star to Bethlehem, Belen’s first annual spiritual celebration of the birth of Our Lord. About 1,000 people attended this free event which featured five Nativity scenes on historic Becker Street. These presentations included enactments of the Christmas story with music and live animals including a camel, oxen, sheep, goats, and donkeys. The Salvation Army and other local groups and businesses provided free refreshments of cookies, posole, hot chocolate, warm tea and cider, and other treats. The next Follow the Star to Bethlehem is planned for December 13, 2014. More information will be available on www.celebratebelen.com.
