Imagine brightly colored gumdrops, candy canes, peppermints, licorice, and lots of icing. Talk about a sugar rush. Decorating gingerbread houses is a fun festive activity for the whole family. And it’s even more fun when it’s larger than life.

The talented students from the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute took this tradition to the next level by creating the largest life-size gingerbread village in Western New York. You can walk around and explore this gingerbread village in Niagara Falls on weekends starting on November 24 through December 22.

Take Home a Piece of the Fun

On Friday, November 30th individual houses made by members of the community will be unveiled.  Entries from professionals, amateurs, college students, high school students and children will be judged with prizes going to the top 3 in each category.  The public will have the opportunity to help select the people’s choice awards for each category, and even take a house with them if they place a bid in the silent auction!  The auction closes on Tuesday, December 4th.
