Steamboat briefs for Dec. 12

Christmas Alive nativity show runs through Sunday

The Christian Heritage School is displaying its annual Christmas Alive Nativity drive-through show from 6 to 8 p.m. today through Sunday at the school. Community members can drive alongside a set of five scenes of the Nativity while listening to a CD created and narrated by students in the school. Last year, the event had more than 900 attendees, Director of Development Sharol Lanning said.

“Everybody has some role in it,” she said. “Some come every night to be in a scene; some are helping set up scenes. It takes all of us to help.”

The shows run continuously during the two hours with rotating casts to keep students warm.

Gingerbread House Tour seeking votes from public

Five professionally made gingerbread houses are on display in downtown Steamboat Springs. Mainstreet Steamboat Springs is asking the public to take some time to visit each of the locations to view these creations and cast a vote for Best Gingerbread House Builder. A ballot box and ballots are available at each of the locations. Only ballots stamped by all five locations will be counted. The houses are displayed at The Homesteader, Epilogue Book Co., K. Saari Gallery, Off the Beaten Path, and the new Steamboat Ski and Sport Downtown Howelsen Place at Seventh Street and Lincoln Avenue. The winner will be announced at the Merry Mainstreet event between 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday Amateur gingerbread houses will be on display at that event. Call Tracy Barnett at 846-1800 for details.
