This year's Gingerbread Exhibit is going green, so you will enjoy creations that display a lot of imagination, and also, environmental consciousness. You also have the chance to make your own.
Stop by the Essex County Environmental Center and the resourceful staff will get you started on your own unique creation. All gingerbread projects must be completed by 1 p.m. to be considered for the contest. Some materials will be provided, however, you are encouraged to bring your own items. This is also the last day to register for the contest. Advance registration is required; call 973.228.8776.
Sustainable Gingerbread Homes will be on display from Wednesday, December 6 through Friday, December 15. Prizes will be awarded, in various categories on Saturday, December 16. Call the Environmental Center to register or for more information.
