Living Green Olympia: Gingerbread Cottages Competition - November 2010 in Olympia WA

Gingerbread Cottages Competition - November 2010 in Olympia WA


Gingerbread Holiday Competition Olympia

Less than a month from now, the 3rd annual Gingerbread Holiday Competition will be happening in Olympia WA - the most creative group of gingerbread houses you've ever seen!  The gingerbread creations will be on display November 27th and 28th from noon until 5 PM in the Olympia Hotel ballroom (116 Legion Ave) in downtown Olympia WA.  Admission is free but you can buy tickets at $1.00 each to vote for your favorite of the gingerbread entries.  All donations will benefit South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity.

Judging by last year's event, the hardest part for viewers will be to figure out who to vote for as favorite as there were so many clever and elaborate gingerbread cottages and creations.  I've never ventured into gingerbread house making, but looking at these fancy cottages does make me a little bit inspired (also a little bit hungry).  I know we were torn between the Governor's Mansion, a very crooked house (yes it was supposed to be crooked), a gingerbread Grandfather's clock as well as the ones shown in this blog.  Lots of witty people at work on these - this "Cavity Castle" was getting chuckles as people viewed it!  And of course it was an entry sponsored by a local dentist!

Thanks Leilani - yes last year it was a tossup as to whether my little granddaughter, my son or I had the best time!

Hahaha Todd!  Have you ever made gingerbread houses then or would you eat it all before it got done?
