Weekender: Head to Gingerbread Lane at Ballantyne Hotel

weekend

From December 24-25, take a detour to the luxurious Ballantyne Hotel on the way to your gift exchanges, feasts, and celebrations this weekend. The luxury hotel goes all out during the month of December and their annual festive Gingerbread Lane, with an appearance from Santa, is a road of giant edible houses previously made by professional bakers, amateurs and children in a friendly competition.

Take a close look at the details: Pretzel fences. Frosting garland. Mint walkways. Roofs of fruit rollups. You’ll see all your favorite goodies repurposed in all kinds of creative ways. Donate $1 to the Levine Children’s Hospital to vote for the most creative candy homes, churches, and other original architecture in town.

So, if you’re looking for one last weekend event to squeeze in before Christmas is finally here, grab the kids and pay a visit to the Ballantyne hotel.
