Do you live in an apartment in Raleigh, NC? Do you love gingerbread? If so, you are in luck. The Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest, the downtown Raleigh festival that includes an ice rink from November to February, will launch its first Gingerbread House Competition this year.
And if you want to participate, you better hurry: The deadline to sign and submit your application is 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 7. The competition is open to all gingerbread house makers, regardless of experience. The public will be able to vote for their top three favorites. I think this would be a fun competition for families!
The entries will be on display at the winterfest celebration on Dec. 6. Only 25 applicants can be accommodated. Entries will be selected on a first come, first served basis. So now is the time!
Prize packages include everything from tickets to local shows, gift cards to local businesses and more. Check the Go Downtown Raleigh website for more information and to download the registration form.
The ice rink will open on Nov. 22 and remain open until Feb. 1.
