Saturday, December 7, 2019 | Downtown Cary

Visit Downtown Cary as it is transformed into a walking gallery of amateur gingerbread houses. Local participants work hard to design, create, and display a gingerbread house that is yummy enough for an elf's visit!

The houses will be on display in Downtown Cary businesses on December 7, 2019. A map of house locations is available below.
