The re-enacted Story begins in Nazareth where it was announced that all were to travel to Bethlehem for a census. It then portrays the cold four day/three-night journey to Bethlehem and the difficulties Mary and Joseph encounter in that crowded city. Finally, it re-lives the Birth of Jesus in a cave outside of the city.

Santa will be visiting every Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. And this year, The Enchanted Forest will have a special opening on Christmas from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This is the 20th year for the Enchanted Forest which was originally held in the Center Point Mall in Stevens Point. With the demise of the mall, the Forest found a new home in the vintage barn at the top of the hill in Rosholt’s Fair Park. Last year there were more than 100 decorated trees provided by Rosholt High School FCCLA members as well as various community groups and individuals. In addition to the indoor display, the roadways through the Fair Park are also adorned with lights and other holiday displays.

There is no admission charge for the Enchanted Forest, but donations are encouraged. The funds generated are divided between the Rosholt Fair Association, FCCLA, and used for operating expenses.
