Recreating the town of Bethlehem and relating the Nativity story on a grand scale begins Dec. 13 in Livermore.

More than 100 volunteers are participating as builders and actors in a community venture that forges a 30,000 square-foot Bethlehem. Organizer Doug Fernandez has been working on the project for four years and enlisted the help of many donors and volunteers.

The production is free to the public (donations accepted) and repeats the Nativity story beginning at 6:30 p.m. every 30 minutes for five nights Dec. 13-17 on a site between First and Third streets on Church Street, across from Msgr. Adams Field at St. Michael's Parish in Livermore.
