MORRISTOWN, NJ - Have you had a chance to walk through the Gingerbread Wonderland at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum? If you haven't, you better not wait. The gingerbread creations are only on display for three more days; today Friday December 9 until 7:30pm, Saturday December 10 from 10am - 4:30pm and Sunday December 11 from 10am - 4:30pm.

The 25th Annual Gingerbread Wonderland features over 100 homemade creations constructed of gingerbread, candy canes, gumdrops, cereal, and well....just about anything edible. This year's masterpieces include the White House, an Apple Orchard, Marty's Reliable Cycle Store, the Heat Miser and Snow Miser; Santa on the beach and even a conveyor belt showcasing 'Ugly Sweaters" not to mention Finding Nemo, Candy villages, farms and Christmas scenes.  Guests are encouraged to walk through and marvel at all the creations. Most took up to twenty four hours to create, but one creation boasts it took 180 hours to create. (See if you can find this one!)

Leslie Parness, superintendent of horticultural education at the Morris County Park Commission said for "feel-good, holiday fun, Gingerbread Wonderland is a must-see." And Parness is correct. Walking around the displays, with holiday music playing in the background is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Young and old can enjoy the displays from families, individuals, scouts and schools. 

After you have seen them all, vote for your personal favorite in The People’s Choice Award. An award will be given to the first place winners in each of the six categories: Adult, Family, Children, School, Scout and Special Needs.
