Create It With Gingerbread Log Cabin Competition: You Have To See It To Believe It!

The holidays are a fun and festive time of year in Brown County. From a Christmas light parade and Santa sightings around the Village to holiday music shows and even old fashioned candlelight Christmas dinners, there’s something going on from Thanksgiving all the way to New Year’s.

Looking at the event calendar, packed full of holiday happenings, it’s clear that getting into the holiday spirit is pretty easy to do around here. One thing on the agenda that I knew I had to see for myself was the Create It With Gingerbread Log Cabin Competition. I had heard that this competition was unlike any other gingerbread competitions and featured some very intricate and seriously impressive creations.

While I didn’t catch the gingerbread competition awards ceremony on November 22, I was sure to head to the Brown County Inn a week or so later to check out the entries on display at the Gingerbread Log Cabin Exhibit.
