With snow in the forecast, the weather may have scared off a few people, but the outdoor Passion Drama still attracted good-sized crowds in Alexandria on Sunday and Tuesday.


A total of 2,156 people turned out for both days of the event - the 15th annual. That's a little down from previous years, like last year when temperatures hit 70 degrees for the Tuesday presentation, which helped boost the total attendance to nearly 2,900.
