Wheaton library to host gingerbread house contest Dec. 16

The Wheaton Public Library will host a gingerbread house contest from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 16 in the library’s Arts & Culture Center.

No registration is required to enter the contest, but participants must drop off their gingerbread house between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. the day of the event.

The public is invited to vote for their favorite house in three age groups (youth, teen and adult). Voting will run from 1 to 3 p.m. and winners will be announced after votes are tallied at 3 p.m. A prize will be awarded to the winner of each category. During the voting period, the public is welcome to stay to watch a showing of the classic movie “Elf.”

The week after the contest, the library will host gingerbread themed story times for youth age 5 and under with their caregiver. These story times will take place at 10 and 11 a.m Dec. 18 and Dec. 20. No registration required.
