Gingerbread Wonderland -- Open Through Sunday

Gingerbread Wonderland opened to record setting crowds this weekend. If you are planning to attend, we suggest mornings as they are a lot less crowded.

The Gingerbread Cafe is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm and offers hot drinks, sandwiches, belgium waffles and some of the best mac and cheese ever!

Crafters in the classrooms on the lower level have an array of charming and affordable answers to your gift giving questions.
