Join us for the 7th Annual Gingerbread Scavenger Hunt. Begin the hunt at Auntie Em's (111. W Main St., Suite 115) or High Garden Realty and follow the clues that will lead you to discover hand-decorated gingerbread houses in merchants’ holiday windows. Prizes can be picked up from either the Auntie Em's or High Garden Realty Dec 13 thru 23rd.

Merchants in the Arts & Design District will decorate the gingerbread houses which can be seen in each of their windows. A “People’s Choice” award will be given to the merchant with the most votes based on the indication of your favorite house on the clue sheet.

Open to students in grades K-12.
