Landmarks Theme for 2013 Holiday Port Gingerbread House Contest in Bellingham

Published on : Thursday, November 14, 2013

BellinghamWhat’s your favorite landmark? And can you re-create it using edible materials? This year’s theme for the Holiday Port Gingerbread House Contest in Bellingham is “Landmarks.” Contestants can compete in this category or in one of nine age or group categories. Now in its eighteenth year, the contest is free and open to all ages and abilities. Entries don’t have to be houses or made of gingerbread, but they must be visibly edible. The main thing is to have fun and be creative!

 

The Gingerbread House Contest is part of the Holiday Port Festival, a Port of Bellingham event that takes place at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal Dec. 6-8. This family-friendly event will feature performances from local bands, choirs and dance troupes, along with fire truck rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, art activities for children, Santa Claus, and the gingerbread contest display. The festival is open to the public Friday from noon-8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

 

Families, community groups and classrooms of school-age children have all made a tradition out of entering the gingerbread house contest every year, which typically receives more than 80 entries from bakers that range in age from under five to over 65. Many of the entries are donated to a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting our local Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross.
