Weehawken’s Annual Family Gingerbread Event

A Few Spaces Still Remain for Weehawken’s Annual Family Gingerbread Event This Weekend – Call Weehawken to Reserve Your Spot Today!

For years, Weehawken has presented the “Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops” in both Ouray and Ridgway. This fun, free family event serves 25-35 families in each community and is a wonderful holiday tradition. In celebration of Weehawken Dance’s exciting new December production of “Polar Express” (on December 13 & 14), Weehawken is changing-up the traditional Gingerbread event and will be offering Gingerbread Trains for decorating this year!

Families must reserve a train in advance (limit 1 train per family) and will arrive to the location to find an assembled house that needs the magic of decoration. Weehawken does also welcome families who have registered to bring additional houses (or trains) if they wish to decorate more, but Weehawken only provides one train per family for this event. Once families arrive, they peruse tables of candy and goodies that can be added to the structures. As a team, families decorate their house and then get to take the house home for enjoyment during the holiday season. Donations are gladly accepted and appreciated for this program as it runs well over $1500 to provide the service to participants. The suggested donation is $10.

The 2013 workshops are set for Saturday, December 7th in Ridgway from 10 am until Noon (at Condor Hall/Ridgway Elementary School) and Sunday, December 8th in Ouray from 1 pm until 3 pm. Registrations will be accepted starting November 15th and will be taken until the spaces are filled. Registrations are taken at Weehawken Creative Arts by phone at 970.318.0150 or online at www.weehawkenarts.org.
