The annual Christmas in Bethel celebration will be held Sunday beginning at 10 am. This year’s celebration features several new activities. President of the Bethel German Colony Board, Wendy Brumbaugh says this includes some local performers in the Colony Barn.

There will also be Christmas bingo and Christmas karaoke to go along with the live music. There is also a new addition to the food offerings at Christmas in Bethel. Along with the usual baked goods and food from the Fest Hall Restaurant, Brumbaugh says a new food stand will have some Christmas selections.

Another new event will be a Candy Cane Hunt for the kids.

Other activities at Christmas in Bethel include colony home tours, a vesper service, and pictures with Santa. Admission to the event is free. For more information visit
