The holidays are sneaking upon us once more!

Get ready for the festivities by building a gingerbread creation and entering a contest to win a cash prize! There is no entry fee to participate; all you have to do is register for the contest.

We would like to invite all schools, charities, service groups, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, community services, sports teams, families and all other individuals in the community to build a gingerbread creation representing what their December Celebrations look like – December celebrations from around the World.

Our panel of judges will be awarding over $10,000 in cash prizes to the best gingerbread creations. We will also once again be allowing you to vote for your favourite gingerbread creation and will award the winner a $1000 “People’s Choice Award.” 

All entries of the gingerbread creations will be displayed at Central City Shopping Centre. Voting will begin on December 4th and last until December 12th. Each dollar donated will equal one vote, and all proceeds go to the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Encourage your friends and family to vote for your gingerbread creation!
