3. Gingerbread Village Returns to Madison Square Park

Gingerbread Village in Madison Square Park 2016

Gingerbread Village returns to Madison Square Park, presenting a life-size gingerbread house that is decorated with a “frosting” covered roof, peppermint sticks, gum drops and all manner of other trimmings. The interactive installation, presented by Taste of Home, a food and entertainment brand, allows visitors to embark on a” journey of sight, sound and motion.” Hashtag #holidayheritage and have your Gingerbread Village photos displayed on a large digital screen.

Gingerbread Village at Madison Square Park is a free event, opening on December 9, and will remain on view to December 23, 2017. Madison Square Park is located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue and Broadway at 23rd Street. Follow Gingerbread Village at Madison Square Park on Facebook.

While you’re there, step across the street to view the new installation, Flatiron Reflections, on the 23rd Street/Flatiron Triangle.
