Savannah Gingerbread Village Holiday Event, Westin Savannah Resort

** Update:  Dates for the #Savannah Gingerbread Village (free viewing at the Westin) are through December 30, 2013.

Are you crazy for gingerbread?  Does the sight of gingerbread houses make you welcome Christmas into your life?   Is your holiday incomplete without creating beautiful gingerbread-and-icing  architecture?  If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, you're sure to enjoy the Gingerbread Village holiday event, held annually at the Westin Savannah Resort!

This free event, sponsored by the Savannah Harbor Foundation, runs from Thanksgiving through December 26, 2011 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa Main Lobby.  This friendly competition challenges both amateur and professional chefs to present their gingerbread creations for all to see.  One lucky designer will walk away with the title of "Best Gingerbread Creation."

The Westin is on Hutchinson Island, but if you are staying at a romantic Savannah Inn, you can make use of the FREE water ferries of the Savannah Belles Ferry system, in front of City Hall on River Street.  Ferries run from Savannah to the island and back each day from 7:00 am to midnight, at 15-20 minute intervals.  PLEASE NOTE that no ferries run on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.

Judging takes place before the event is open to the public this year.  Prizes will be awarded to the top two Adult, Junior, and Children's Division entrants, so come by to see the gorgeous entries, view the winners, and soak up the holiday spirit!
