Nothing replaces seeing this work up close and personal (and smelling the sugary structures is nice, too), so we thought it wouldn’t hurt to give a sneak peek of the Gingerbread Festival.
The festival is this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Carriage House in Longwood Park. Inside, a gingerbread house competition is on display. Outside, a marshmallow roast, raffle prizes, arts and crafts vendors, and food vendors alongside live entertainment.
Live entertainment will include guitar entertainers Rich and Andy, the Salem High Jazz band, a Karate demonstration by Superkicks, and music by “Pure and Simple,” a four-sister singing group.
They’re also raffling off a Kindle at the Salem Roanoke County Chamber of Commerce!
Admission and parking for this event are free. For more information, contact the chamber at 387-0267.
