SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) – Today we’re Cruisin’ Connecticut to South Windsor, home of the Wood Library and Museum for their 6th annual “Gingerbread House Festival.” I never knew there was such a thing. Who would’ve thunk?
Anyhow, there are over 150 handmade gingerbread houses on display, crafted by people of various skill levels from across the state. Some are made by chefs, high school students, families… the whole gambit.
Approximately 100 of the houses are up for bid, all to help raise money for the museum’s operating costs. All of the proceeds go to fund programs throughout the year for adult and youth education, along with a new Native American exhibit.
From traditional gingerbread houses, to “Minions”, to a gingerbread scale of “Harry’s Place” hot dog stand in Colchester… the festival is sure to have something your family will love.
The Gingerbread House Festival at the Wood Library and Museum in South Windsor runs now through December 10th, and is open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 10am-8pm and weekends from 10am-5pm.
