Come check out this year’s gingerbread creations at this Opera House tradition. This annual display of gingerbread houses large and small, with a few cabins, castles, lighthouses, and mythical structures thrown in for good measure shows off the heart of the community. Professional bakers and grade school builders all compete in this hilarious annual event with prizes awarded for Most Ingredients Used, Best Holiday Spirit, Most Obsessive Compulsive, Best Landscaping and, of course, Most Spectacular among other awards. The confectionery creations are on display beginning Friday evening at the Dough Ball Preview Party and then throughout the weekend from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday. No admission fee. Donations welcome. Dozens of wildly creative edible construction projects, music & entertainment, cocoa, a great bake sale, and the magical gingerbread structures make this the most fun weekend of the year, all set within the gorgeously decorated Opera House. Words do not do it justice, it must be seen to be believed. Mark your calendars and bring your family and friends to this special holiday tradition. Interested in creating an entry for this year’s Spectacular? Please call 207-633-6855 for details. This weekend of holiday magic is generously sponsored by The First National Bank and we are particularly thankful to the staff of the Boothbay Harbor branch.
