The ancient town of Bethlehem opened Wednesday night in Savannah.
Savannah Christian Church has hosted The Journey, their outdoor drama, for more than a decade.
Their version of Bethlehem includes hundreds of volunteers in costume, as well as camels, sheep, horses, tigers and an array of other animals.
More than 20,000 people from all across the Southeast are expected to visit and walk through the story of Jesus' birth over the next few weeks.
