Gingerbread Competition

December 07, 2019 11:00 AM until December 07, 2019 01:00 PM

Calling all crafty bakers and budding architects with a sweet tooth! Radisson Blu + Filini are hosting their first annual gingerbread house contest! 

Whether you lean towards a more traditional pitched-roof style with a chimney or prefer something more modern—an eye-catching skyscraper, perhaps?—all entries are welcome. In fact, the more creative the better! Just be sure your entry is placed on a board base and isn’t larger than 24 inches in height, width and length. There’s flexibility in what your home is made of. The only requirement is that it needs to be made of completely edible materials. (Full rules, guidelines and entry form here.)

REGISTRATION IS FREE but participants must purchase all needed materials.

Entries will be divided into two categories: Young (5-12 years old old) and Adult (13 and over).

Winners of each category will have choice of:

· Two-night stay in the Presidential Suite at The Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago with food & beverage credits.

· Two-night stay at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Participants will need to bring their completed houses to Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago’s Atlantic Ballroom on Saturday, December 7 between 10 and 11 a.m.

The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Light bites will be provided.
