Holiday Happenings in Polk County - Florida 


Gingerbread HouseHoliday Happenings are in full swing all accross Polk County and Lakeland, Florida.  I remember a few years ago I won a Gingerbread House that was made by a German baker and boy this house was the biggest one I came accross to.  My grandkids' eyes were wide open when I brought home the Gingerbread House.  My pick for this week's event is to take your kids and/or grandchildren and enjoy the view of some of the amazing Gingerbread Houses on display in Winter Haven.


See creative gingerbread houses built by both professional and amateur chefs. Funds raised benefit the Women's Resource Center of Florida Inc.

WHEN:  Dec. 15; 1-4 p.m. Sunday. 

LOCATION: The Women's Club, 660 Pope Ave. N.W.  

Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida

Enjoy the holiday home tour at the Pinewood Estates, a 20-room Mediterranean-style decked out in this year's holiday theme "The Nature of the Holidays" daily through January 6, 2013.

My daughter actually makes a gingerbread house and decorates it with her daughter.......something I never did....unfortunately. This certainly sounds like a great localism post and one I would enjoy!
