The Gettysburg Festival’s Gingerbread Celebration was a huge success! We were absolutely blown away by the craftsmanship and artistry of the gingerbread houses. Saturday’s event was free to attend and many children got the opportunity to create their own gingerbread house.  The Evening Sun wrote a fantastic article about the event.
