Annual Nativity Show Fundraiser To Help Homeless In Ventura County Coming To End

For more than two decades, a unique show on the South Coast has raised money to help the homeless.

“No Room At The Inn” features hundreds of nativity scenes of all shapes and sizes.  While the tradition is set to take place this weekend, after a quarter of a century, the annual event is coming to an end.

The event has raised more than $430,000 over the years.  But, organizers say the project has turned into too much work for them to continue it.

They're hoping to end it with the biggest "No Room" event in their history.  The 2017 show has more than 700 nativity scenes, the most ever.  It takes places Friday through Sunday at the Padre Serra Parish in Camarillo.  There's an Opening Gala Reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.  Then, the exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, and 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
