We first published the details on Frelinghuysen Arboretum Gingerbread Wonderland, a gingerbread Morris County holiday event in 2015. We’ve updated it to reflect this year’s information.
Don’t Miss the 27th Annual Gingerbread Wonderland at Frelinghuysen Arboretum!
A few years ago we discovered this holiday treasure, and it is now on our holiday must-do list. A room full of talent, treats and creativity, we had a hard time choosing our favorite. Photos here are from past years and this year promises to be just as amazing!
Both local groups and individuals spend hours creating their houses. Some are simple, some are elaborate, but all will give you inspiration. Entrant categories are Adult, Family, Child, School Group, Scout Group and Special Needs.
The Arboretum encourages conservation so you will see many structures with a “green” theme. The room smells sweet and enticing, and it’s really a place to get you in the mood for Christmas and all the sweets that accompany it! We spent about an hour there looking at all the detail, and appreciating the creativity. Child entries can be made of cardboard but must be covered with edible products. You’ll be surprised at all the candies used! There will be a people’s choice contest so as you look, remember which are the most impressive. I promise it will be really hard to choose!
