Enter a realm of fanciful gingerbread houses created by local bakeries, schools, youth groups, individuals and families as part of our annual Gingerbread House Competition.

Contestants were inspired by adventure stories, historic places, and their own imaginations to create these marvelous gingerbread displays. Come take a stroll through this magical world filled with gingerbread houses, decorated holiday trees, and scenes inspired by a popular fairy tale about a fearless princess’ epic journey to find her sister whose powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
