Christmas Event Brings a Bit of ‘Whoville’ to Melba

A live nativity scene reenacts the birth of Christ and the meaning of Christmas.


Madge Wylie, Melba’s “unofficial historian,” shares a smile alongside Santa during the Christmas in Melba event last week.

About 300 residents and visitors spent time listening to choirs sing, petting Clyde the Camel, seeing the meaning of Christmas come to life in the nativity scene, exploring the display of Christmas from 100 years ago and telling Santa Claus their Christmas wishes during Christmas in Melba on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

A big hit again this year was Clyde the Camel, led by owner Gary Drake dressed in period attire, as he wondered the streets for kids and adults to get an up close look and even pet the 8-foot-tall animal.
