South Windsor's Gingerbread House Festival Amazes

Amateurs, professionals from all over Central Connecticut entered the state's largest display.

The largest gingerbread house exhibit in New England got a bit larger this year.
Indeed, there were more than 300 entries in the Wood Memorial Library's third annual Gingerbread House Festival, which concluded on Sunday.

Entries came from amateurs, professionals and everyone in between from all over Central Connecticut, including South Windsor, Manchester, West Hartford and East Windsor.

The gingerbread houses ranged from the traditional four walls, a frosting covered roof and candy decorations to the more creative and elaborate.

Max Restaurant Group created a spot-on replica of the Governor's Mansion, while another entrant built a tobacco shed out of gingerbread.

Some had pop culture themes, such as the Ewok village from Star Wars and a Lord of the Rings castle.

"I've been trying to come here for years," said Enfield resident Lynn Johnson on Saturday. "It's beyond my imagination. It's outstanding."
