“The creation of the gingerbread house is a unique experience, and provides an excellent team building project. It’s thrilling to have thousands of people view, admire, photograph, and tweet your finished creation,” Lesley Parness, Superintendent of Horticultural Education, at the Morris County Park Commission stated.

Previous entries have included a scene from Snow White, Santa’s Workshop, a grand piano, a Hanukah Menorah, Chinese pagoda, a Nutcracker, and even the White House.
