Grab your gumdrops, ready your candy canes and snap up your sugar — it’s the House to House Combat: Battle of the Gingerbreads! The online competition features Windsor and Essex County residents submitting their gingerbread house masterpieces to the Windsor Star for a chance to be declared the Best Gingerbread House in Windsor-Essex. Entries are evaluated on criteria including: appearance, originality & creativity, difficulty, consistency of theme etc. The houses are then judged by the community online at Windsor Star until 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners are declared.
The Battle of the Gingerbreads is a responsible, socially-distanced alternative to a traditional in-person gingerbread house competition. It embraces the community, encourages engagement, and helps families carry on the legacy and tradition of creating gingerbread houses through a unique, engaging, fun, creative and safe virtual format.
