Gingerbread Jubilee: The Holiday Family Tradition is set for Nov. 20-22
COLUMBUS, GA - Children's Miracle Network at The Medical Center has partnered with Olympic Gold Medal Chef Jamie Keating of the RiverMill Event Centre to host the second-annual Gingerbread Jubilee.
The three-day event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, November 21 from 1 to 6 p.m.; and Monday, November 22 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the RiverMill Event Center.
Gingerbread Jubilee is a multi-activity event that the entire family may enjoy. It is a competition event for groups and individuals to create gingerbread houses in a variety of categories (professional, amateur, school groups and local celebrities).
It is a viewing event for families to admire the gingerbread creations. It is a craft event for children to decorate their own gingerbread house to take home with them. And it is a shopping extravaganza with numerous vendors onsite to allow participants to get a head start on their Christmas shopping.
In addition, local schoolchildren will present holiday music programs and Keating will offer culinary demonstrations throughout the weekend. Santa is scheduled to visit on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.; and Monday from 11 a.m. to noon and again from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
All Gingerbread Jubilee creations will be on display throughout the three-day event. Prizes will be awarded for participants in the four categories on Saturday, November 20 at 3:00 p.m.
Admission to Gingerbread Jubilee is free to all, but some activities require a fee. All funds raised will benefit children treated at The Medical Center through Children's Miracle Network.
