The Rehoboth Beach Gingerbread Contest, set for December 9 and 10 at Epworth UM Church, will have gingerbread and much more. The event begins on Saturday at 11 am and concludes on Sunday at 2 pm. Activities include children's crafts, a visit from Santa, and a visit by micro miniature horse Silver Wings from Angelic Touch Therapy Animals, a display of winter and Christmas-themed quilts on loan from Ocean Waves Quilt Guild, a model train garden, and a cafe selling apple cider, hot chocolate, freshly baked cookies and hot dogs.
A detailed event schedule can be found on the website, www.gingerbreadjoy.org.
Event proceeds will support Epworth's Christmas Joy and Good Sam programs, The West Rehoboth Children & Youth Program, and provide aid to homeless students in the Cape Henlopen School District. Funds will be raised by a People's Choice Vote Fundraiser, deciding the winning entries in four amateur divisions: adult, high school, family, and non-profit organization. Tickets are one dollar each or six tickets for five dollars. Professional entries will be sold by silent auction. Voting and auction will end at 1 pm on Sunday afternoon. Admission is free.
