The Life-Sized Nativity Scene in Vila do Conde (Portugal)

in travel •  2 months ago  (edited)

I'd like to share with you some photos I took this weekend at the Parque da Memória (Memorial Park), in Vila do Conde. These shots show the Life-Sized Nativity Scene, which is part of the many activities and events put together by the city hall, since the beginning of December.

The overall scene was quite realistic and the children were loving it but also some adults, who showed a lot of interest in it. Some were even walking up to the actors who were playing the roles of Joseph and Mary to chat with them.

The whole stage was pretty good... and the only thing missing was a real baby playing the part of Jesus - for obvious reasons.

They even had a real cow on the stage.

I was able to grab some close shots at the cow and she thought that my camera looked so tasty... she almost licked it. 😋

The cow appears to be in great shape and very clean. I assume she's been treated very well.

We all know how cows attract insects, namely flies in search for a dirty meal.

Here, however, there wasn't a single fly hovering around her. I wonder what kind of sorcery they used?

Before she could do any damage, I took a step back.

And finally, here's the close up shot of the actors. I had already shown you this one yesterday but here it is again, for those who missed that post.

I hope you enjoyed these shots... and if you are ever in Portugal during Christmas, you now know where to go, in order to have a good time. In Vila do Conde, the City Hall is always very active and planning these kind of events. Not only during Christmas but all year long. There's always some exhibit, market or fair going on. 🤗

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Do you have this sort of thing over there?

Here's a bit of !BEER and a !DERANGED token for you!

Thank you for the beer :beers: !
Yes in Italy, not in England [that I know]. Still a good excuse to stay off school.
Sidenote: do you know if Steemit dust sweeper is still working?

Yes, it's still working. Why?

Good to know that it's still working and that my 0.005 go to the recipient of choice.
Tomorrow I'll stake the beers.
Thank You again.

Thank you for supporting @CatsMakeKittens by being a part of our community @trincowski.

Speaking of that... I wonder what happened to all the Kitties I've sent since 27 December? They seem to have be eaten by wolves. 🤔

Not on our Steem blockchain nearly as much as I used to be @trincowski, it was interesting to see notice you had posted this at the same time I was reading about Marvão in your country. Ever been there?

Anyway, wanted to "stop in" and wish you and yours all the best for a happy and prosperous New Year! 😊 👍

Hi there!

I have not been in Marvão but I was in Castelo de Vide once, which is only 10 kms away.

Thanks for your visit. I wish you an excellent year! Here's a little bit of !BEER and a !DERANGED token to kick it off! 😊

Well, not necessary, but thank you kindly for the tokens @trincowski. Do you like these particular tokens? Do you think SMTs will ever come around and potentially "save" our Steem blockchain?

Who knows? I've been using these tokens as an alternative to upvoting people's comments. After the new fork, it requires a much larger upvote or else it all becomes dust. 🙄

You can drink all of your !BEER like a !DERANGED person would... or sell some of it. 😉

Okay @trincowski. I understand about these post HF 22 changes. Not particularly favorable from my perspective ...

Anyway, thanks for the input and the tokens. Take care!

Most endearing is the straw in Joseph's mouth :)

That was a nice touch. 😁

Thanks for your visit and comment, Kimberly. Here's a bit of !BEER in a !DERANGED but unbreakable cup for you!

Cheers!

O José parece-me desconfiado da história que lhe contaram... 😂

E não é caso para menos.

  • "Grávida? E ninguém te tocou? Essa história não cheira bem...", lá deve estar ele a pensar. 🙄

Aí vai uma !BEER e um token !DERANGED

Very cool Nativity scene!

Thanks for sharing your pictures of the nativity scene. And the cow looked extremely well-kept. At first it looked like the actors were life-sized statutes. The entire area was staged nicely. Love all the hay scattered about.

I must say I like that cow and the straw in Josephs mouth..You cought him at the right moment :)

That is great, I believe the children were very excited if even us adults that makes puzzled with its originality :)
