Gingerbread Jubilee, an annual event benefitting Children’s Miracle Network, took place November 20-22 at the Rivermill Event Centre. Children and adults of all ages were treated to a wonderland of sweet creations. Attendees also listened to Christmas music, shopped at various vendor booths, created gingerbread houses, and sat in on some tasty presentations. The event was even visited by Santa!
Over the course of three days, 900+ gingerbread houses were constructed! The public was then invited to vote on their favorite house. Over 3,000 people attended this year to admire the houses, watch live cooking demos by Jamie Keating and congratulate the winners. Categories for the gingerbread houses included amateur, celebrity, professional and school.
Celebrity entries included Dr. Tim Mescon from CSU, Ed Bostic from PMB Broadcasting, Janet David from TIC Federal Credit Union, Jerome Bechard from the Columbus Cottonmouths, Lisa Rowe and Richard Bishop from Uptown, Sandra Okamoto from the Ledger, Tammy Terry from WRBL, and Billy and Olivia Blanchard from CB&T.
Though the event may have ended, some attendees left with houses won in the silent auction. All proceeds benefited Children’s Miracle Network. The next CMN event will be Reindeer Run on December 11, so be sure to attend!
