(WBIR - Downtown Knoxville) A long-standing Knoxville holiday tradition is back wowing audiences again this weekend at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum.
The Nativity Pageant of Knoxville is back to spread the joy for it's 45th consecutive year.
The show features 100 live actors, actresses, and even some live animals.
A 200-person choir with an orchestra helps provide music for the celebration.
The hour-long performance is free and open to the public.
The final show for this year's Nativity Pageant is Monday starting at 7 PM. Organizers suggest arriving early because the performance begins in the dark.
