LEWISTON — The Lewiston Public Library will host a Gingerbread Festival from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13.
All ages are welcome and admission is free.
As families enter the library, they will be invited to follow a Story Walk outlining a favorite gingerbread tale. Families will follow the tale through the library up to Callahan Hall, where the Gingerbread Festival will be taking place.
Children and adults alike will be invited to create their own mock gingerbread house, decorate cookies, enjoy the cocoa bar, and more.
Guests of all ages are encouraged to try their luck at a trivia contest, with both adult and child age divisions. Assorted gingerbread giveaways will be available, including house kits, bookmarks and more.
If you make your own gingerbread houses at home, the library would like to display your creation leading up to and at the Gingerbread Festival. Decorated houses can be a donation to the library or be returned after the event.
For details, or to arrange the display of your creation, contact Danielle at 513-3133, ext. 3504, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
