IRON RIVER—On Saturday, Dec. 13 and Sunday, Dec. 14, the parking lot of Lakeland Baptist Church will once again be transformed into the little town of Bethlehem, featuring costumed townspeople, shepherds, angels and live animals.
    In addition to the stable, the town has been expanded this year to include the Bethlehem Inn, the Bethlehem Bakery, the Blacksmith Shop and Basket Shop.
    The public is invited to walk through and feel as if they have been transported back in time, some 2,000 years ago, to that first Christmas Eve. The 10-minute recorded story of the birth of Christ will be replayed every 15 minutes from 5 to 8 p.m. daily.
    The bakery will serve hot cider, coffee and warm “Bethlehem Baby Cakes.”
    This event is free. Lakeland Baptist is located at 950 Lalley Road.
    For more information, call the church at 265-5616.
