December is here and that means it’s time to plan, design, build and decorate your gingerbread homes for Palisade’s Olde Fashioned Christmas Gingerbread House Contest and Showcase, Saturday, December 12th.
The contest now has 5 categories: for prizes and ribbons: Children 11 and under, Youth 12 to 17, Adult, Groups (families, clubs, etc) and new this year….. Best Business Builders - strictly for bragging rights. Burmeister says there’s some who bring homes and other buildings just to be in the Showcase – and not the contest. Such is the case with previous winner and superb designer Frances Blackwelder.
“We’ve had boys, girls, business groups, clubs, 4-H, a team of a couple young moms and children, and yes, even a grandpa and granddaughter team” Burmeister went on to say. “What a joy to see all the smiles and pride that goes into the event” she said. There will also be the People’s Choice Awards this year so get ready to vote.
