Local gingerbread house contest open now through Dec. 7

Kara Strate and her six children have long looked forward to the city's annual gingerbread house contest at the North Peace Cultural Centre. With no contest scheduled at the centre this year, the Strate family are holding a contest of their own to both keep the spirit of their favourite event alive, and to give families something safe and fun to do during the Christmas season without having to leave their homes or deal with COVID-19 restrictions. 

"Everyone isdealing with something right now, whether it's economically, physically, or emotionally. This contest is a nice community thing and something positive people can enjoy and look forward to," Strate said.

The winning creations and runners up will be showcased at Strate's husbands shop, for customers and people who drive by to enjoy. Contestants have until 6 p.m. on December 7 to take a picture of their gingerbread house and send it to the appropriate channels on social media. There will be four categories to enter: ages 11 and under, ages 12 to 17, an adult age group, and a family category.

For more information, contact Kara Strate at 250-271-3300.
