A crowd gathered for the Nelson tradition of Christmas on Baker that returned to downtown Friday evening.
A live nativity scene, Christmas music, warm drinks and food were on offer as a gift to the community from the local churches of Nelson.
Children were able to get interactive with a live nativity scene featuring Mary, Joseph and a chubby cheeked baby Jesus. There were also farm animals in the manger scene.
Performances were given by the Nelson Community Band and Choir, Nelson Christian Community School and St. Joe’s school choirs, The Catholic Youth Band, and The Kootenay Christian Fellowship Band.
There was a community Christmas carol sing-a-long as well.
Everyone enjoyed the seasonal celebration.
