The Christmas Road to Bethlehem annual holiday display in Lonoke County is now open and will remain open through Jan. 1 along Bethlehem Road, off Hwy. 31 North, 11 miles north of Lonoke and 11 miles south of Beebe.

Leading to Bethlehem United Methodist Church, it features 30 hand-painted scenes and scriptures along the roadside telling the story of Christ’s birth.

The church, 2540 Bethlehem Road, will also hold musical programs, candlelight services and refreshments from 7 till 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

According to the announcement, “Since its beginning in 1987 the exhibit has been a popular destination for visitors from all over central Arkansas and beyond at Christmastime. Many who have visited share memories of driving down Bethlehem Road and reading the Christmas story together with family and friends.

The displays are lighted at night but are also enjoyable for daytime drives.

“You are invited to bring friends, relatives, large groups, church buses, and senior citizen groups to come enjoy the Christmas Road to Bethlehem this Christmas Season,” the announcement concluded.
