Submit Gingerbread Entries + $10 registration fee today, December 3 from 4-6pm at Coldwell Banker HPW: 106-A South Churton Street in downtown Hillsborough.

A walking tour of entries will be displayed in the storefront windows of various downtown businesses from December 5 until January 2, and the public is encouraged to vote through by phone for their favorite designs in both Adult and Youth/Family categories. Prizes will be awarded for Best in Show on New Year’s Eve.
