A unique Auburn tradition is gearing up to begin it’s 2019 season, the Gingerbread Village hosted by the Auburn University Hotel.
The Gingerbread Village is an Auburn masterpiece. The beautiful spaces and landmarks that hold beauty and tradition for The Loveliest Village on the Plains, become a Christmas spectacular.
Made entirely of gingerbread and tasty sugars, it is a sight for the young and the old. Little ones see the fun of their town in tasty array and adults delight in seeing our traditional spaces from a smaller, sweeter perspective.
A new addition has been added this year, the Gogue Performing Arts Center. The GPAC has already wowed locals with its line-up of acts and artisans. Now it can be seen in true Christmas fashion as it is shaped into Gingerbread and topped with icing and peppermint.
The opening of Gingerbread Village is set for December 8, immediately following the Auburn Christmas Parade at 2 p.m. The Village will be unveiled and families may enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, compliments of the hotel.
The Gingerbread Village will hold its place in the Auburn University Hotel until New Year’s Day.
You may visit the village during regular hotel hours throughout the Christmas season and there is no cost.
For more information, call 334-821-8200 or visit www.auhcc.com. The hotel is located at 241 S. College St. in downtown Auburn.
