Procession starts at 5pm from Dock Square
We did this last year and it was great! Let's repeat it!
DRESS WARMLY! IT GETS VERY COLD NEAR THE OCEAN ESPECIALLY IF THE WIND IS BLOWING!
The Pageant is a torch-lit live re-enactment of the Nativity, starting at 5pm along Dock Square and Main Street and ending at the Congregational Church.
Each year hundreds of spectators gather to watch this live re-enactment of the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of baby Jesus. The Pageant begins with a torchlit procession which starts at Dock Square and proceeds up Main Street, with a brief stop at the Rockport Art Association, representing the Bethlehem inn, and then on to the stable at the Congregational Church. Along the way the story of Jesus’ birth is brought to life through a live narration and Christmas hymns sung by a full choir.
Event may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather
Afterwards, we'll walk over to the Rockport National Bank and have some coffee and/or hot choclate and snacks (free open house) and then after that there is a FREE Christmas Carol sing along at the beautiful Shalin Liu Performance Center at 7:00 p.m. A spirited festive evening!!
