Nibley farm transforms into live Nativity

A live Nativity event that features donkeys, sheep, bunnies, chickens and a camel will be held in Nibley this weekend, December 12th, 13th and 15th. It will be held at the Morgan Farm from 5:30 to 9 p.m. all three nights.

There is no entrance fee but donations of $3 per person, $15 per family, or two canned food items per person are suggested to help the Cache Community Food Pantry and Options for Independence. Trudy Knight, advisor for Nibley City Youth Council, says it’s a community effort to pull off the annual tradition.

“We have people from our community sign up and stand in the little barn area where we have a recorded Nativity story,” Knight explains. “It replays one after another and people can watch the kids’ portrayal of the Nativity.”

The Morgan Farm is located at 2726 South 800 West in Nibley. Knight says there are several other activities going on throughout the evening besides the Nativity reenactment.

“They…can walk around the farm, get some hot chocolate for .25 cents, get on a wagon ride that is pulled by the big Clydesdale horses around a field, then hopefully enjoy some singing and look at the camel.”

Knight says several different choirs from around the area will be performing to entertain those who attend.

Nibley City owns the Morgan Farm but leases it to Richard Ebersol who started the <a href=”” target=”_blank”>Live Nativity</a> several years ago. The Nibley Youth Council helps to Ebersol by organizing and assisting to run the event. They also help to collect donations. Knight says approximately 150-300 people a night will attend.
