Field By Night is this Friday

Published 2:01 pm Tuesday, December 7, 2010

The holidays bring with them many obligations—the office get-togethers, the class parties, the endless shopping.

But in the midst of the hurrying, there are a few stress-free times that could become a modern Christmas tradition for your family.

The 8th annual “Field By Night,” held this Friday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m., is designed to be one of those times.

For a little more than an hour that night, a crew of volunteers will transform an empty field into a vibrant Christmas village, rich with lights and bustling with hundreds of people from the community.

As you roam through this holiday town, you might freely sample cookies at “The Bakery,” or sip hot cocoa from “The Coffee House.” You could have a family picture taken at “The Photo Shop,” create an ornament with your children at “The Christmas Store,” or simply admire the other shops and the well-lit tree that marks the center of the town.

But the most captivating feature will be on the outskirts of this holiday village. There, inside the warmth of the Grace gymnasium, the Field By Night multimedia presentation will begin. For about 45 minutes, the all-new dynamic combination of live music and sometimes hysterical original video will create a lasting Christmas memory for the entire family. At the end of the brief multimedia event, the crowds will spill back into the Christmas village, where many stay for nearly an hour, enjoying all Grace has to offer.

More than 100 volunteers from Grace Church are working to make this year’s event a reality, and the entire community is welcome.

There is no charge for any part of this event.

Grace Church is a non-denominational community church, located just inside the bypass between Lake Douglas Road and Tallahassee Highway 27, and on the web at
