Holiday Happenings in Polk County - Florida 

 

Gingerbread HouseHoliday Happenings are in full swing all accross Polk County and Lakeland, Florida.  I remember a few years ago I won a Gingerbread House that was made by a German baker and boy this house was the biggest one I came accross to.  My grandkids' eyes were wide open when I brought home the Gingerbread House.  My pick for this week's event is to take your kids and/or grandchildren and enjoy the view of some of the amazing Gingerbread Houses on display in Winter Haven.

GINGERBREAD HOUSE CONTEST Winter Haven, Florida

See creative gingerbread houses built by both professional and amateur chefs. Funds raised benefit the Women's Resource Center of Florida Inc.

WHEN:  Dec. 15; 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
