It's the season to make gingerbread houses, and at this Merry and Bright Gingerbread Party, kiddos will have a blast decorating gingerbread houses* and gingerbread men with icing, candy, marshmallows and sprinkles.
Saturday, December 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reservations are required. Cost is $35 per child.
*Gingerbread houses will be made out of paper mache so they do not break, crack or crumble while decorating.
