Give your little ones a holiday thrill with a visit to Madison Square Park, which will be hosting a one-of-a-kind life-size gingerbread house this December. Built with ginger “bricks” and topped with a “frosting”-covered roof, the Taste of Home Gingerbread House’s exterior features decorative licorice, gummies, and other colorful candy-like trimmings. Open from Thursday, December 6th through Wednesday. December 19th, this year’s life-sized gingerbread house features peppermint-themed décor (including checkerboard tiles made of 500+lbs of real candy canes!) with a matching sleigh, all set against a winter wonderland backdrop. You can look inside the house’s frosted windows to see a toy train that travels through an edible replica of U.S. landmarks.
