There will be a live nativity, along with a children’s activity room featuring arts and crafts for the younger crowd. Refreshments will also be available.

The event is free.

The nativity event is 5 to 9 p.m. Friday and Sunday with extended hours of 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 26800 236th Pl. S.E., in the Four Corners north of Maple Valley.
