The life-size nativity scene on Willowbrook Dr, has become a popular sight-seeing spot during the holiday season. Ray and Pat Bocanegra began re-creating their nativity scene about 20 years ago. First starting with Joseph, Mary and Jesus and then over the years, it grew bigger and bigger.

Now, on any given night during the holiday’s, residents and neighbors can come by the Bocanegra’s Nativity Scene on Willowbrook Dr. and McArdle to see the full vision of a nativity scene. Bringing out religious and non-religious people, the Bocanegra’s want to show what the true meaning of Christmas really is.

“They need to come so they can feel it, it comes from the heart,” says Ray Bocanegra.

The Bocanegra’s provide popcorn, Christmas music and the full experience at their home.

Every night the scene will be lit up through New Years.
