The Emmanuel Baptist Church in Downtown Alexandria transformed into the city of Bethlehem for the weekend.

In 1988, a few people began "dreaming out loud" about a unique ministry to tell the story of Jesus' birth.

As others joined in the conversation, the pilgrimage to Bethlehem began.

The pilgrimage is a full scale recreation of 1st Century Bethlehem.

Hundreds of church and community members put in months of work to bring the city to life.

Through a tour, characters act out the story of the birth of Jesus.

The last tour day will be held tomorrow from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.
