Prior to the 29th, we will once again be having our Gingerbread Contest with a new category this year called, "Seward Structures". We thought it fitting to add this category to coincide with the parade theme, "There's No Place Like Home". This entry can be a replica of any type of Seward structure including businesses, store fronts, the theatre, or your very own home! Form a team and enjoy creating something together!
