Grand Opening 10a.m. Saturday, November 20
The Prescott Resorts and Conference Center’s World’s Largest Gingerbread Village grand opening at 10a.m. on Saturday, November 20 kicks off the holiday season in Prescott. I attended the judging of the displays this morning so here is a “sneak previw” of what you will see.
Sampling of 2010 displays
This is truly a season of joy! Even in this down economy the number of displays has climbed to ninety from seventy last year. 500 square feet of gingerbread “real estate” space was sold and this all benefits Yavapai Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
Here is a short video taken during the judging on November 19, 2010.
