BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Briarwood Presbyterian Church's annual walk-through Nativity starts tonight and will continue through Friday night this week.

The Nativity starts at 6:45 p.m. and goes until 8:45 p.m. Dec. 11-13 at the church, which is located near the Acton Road exit off of I-459.

The Nativity features 13 scenes in which costumed actors depict the birth and life of Jesus Christ while a narration tells the Christmas story. It also includes more than 20 live animals (even camel, according to their website) and a petting zoo for kids.

Admission is free, and the church also offers free hot chocolate coffee and cookies at the end of the walk. Organizers say you can complete the walk in as little as 20 minutes, or spend an hour going through the walk. There is wheelchair and stroller access at the Nativity scene.

The church's communications director says the church began holding the Walk Through Nativity in 1993. Last year around 8,500 people attended the live Nativity scene and around 800 church members participated.

Briarwood Presbyterian is located at 2200 Briarwood Way in Birmingham. For more details, visit http://briarwood.org/special-events/walk-through-nativity/.
