December's Season of Celebrations and Sharing ~ Gingerbread Festival in South Windsor CT


Gingerbread Festival in South Windsor CT


I had a chance to visit the Gingerbread Festival at Wood Memorial Library in South Windsor CT.  The wonderful smell of gingerbread overtakes you as soon as you walk in the front door.  What a fun event!  There are over 50 gingerbread houses built by various businesses, groups, clubs, and individuals (both adults and children).

There were replicas of the Wadsworth Atheneum, the East Windsor Hill Post Office, a Victorian house, as well as many whimsical pieces.  I think my favorite was the old post office, but many of them had an amazing amount of detail, from frosted windows to curtains to landscaping.

The event began November 28 and runs through December 15.  On December 15, many of the gingerbread houses will be auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the library.  You can see more of the gingerbread houses here.


The Wood Memorial Library is open on Mondays and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.  For more information, visit Wood Memorial Library or call 860-289-1783.

That's a lot of temptation for the people walking through to keep fingers off.

Talk about memories, I remember being snowed in as a kid and not able to go to school until the snow plows came....not something we deal with down here!
