Join us this holiday season for more fun and contests. While our merchants hold their annual window decorating competition, the rest of us can celebrate the season with the Gingerbread Games sponsored by Fab Lab!
Purchase your 2-foot Gingerbread Friend, and decorate it for the season. Gingerbread friends will be displayed throughout the area where Christmas Huts on Main will be taking place, and down the pathway leading into Christmas in the Quarter, at the Historic Colonial Industrial Quarter. Gingerbread Friends will be on display from December 1 through December 21.
Thank you for participating in the Gingerbread Games! Voting has now concluded.
