BRANDON — A fast-food restaurant might have to offer free cheeseburgers to get people to go through its drive-through line twice in the same day.
But repeat visits are fairly common at Cornerstone Baptist Church's "Drive-Through Nativity" presentation.
For the eighth consecutive year, Cornerstone, 818 N Parsons Ave., brings together live animals, vivid scenery, music and more than 125 volunteers to give folks a trip back to Bethlehem.
The Drive-Through Nativity opens today and continues Saturday and Sunday from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
"Reaction is overwhelmingly positive," Cornerstone Pastor Bill Johnson said. "Many come through more than once. Some are surprised that it is a free event and try to make a donation, which we refuse."
The mission of the presentation is simple but significant: to tell what they believe is the true meaning of Christmas.
