Building a Gingerbread House? Here are the Rules for the GFS Contest this weekend!

The Gingerbread House Contest takes place at the LIGHTS ON! event this Saturday, November 27.  The awarding of prizes will take place at 4 pm in the Education Center.

“Gingerbread House” Contest Rules

  • You can use a pre-made kit if you choose.
  • You are encouraged to make your own “house” completely from scratch if you choose.
  • Your “house” need not be made of gingerbread.
  • Decorate your creation with anything you like – the ingredients need to be edible.  If you wouldn’t eat it – don’t use it!
  • Feel free to interpret “house” as loosely as you want to (it should however resemble a structure of some nature but imaginations and creativity are encouraged).
  • Prizes awarded in Children, Family, Adult and Visitor’s Choice categories.
  • Entries must be turned in no earlier than November 23rd and no later than 12pm, November 27th Lights On!  (voting will take place between 12pm and 3:30pm)
