Gingerbread Firehouse Contest in Old Town:
Event to benefit Friendship Firehouse Museum


December 14-15, 2013

The Friendship Firehouse Museum and Office of Historic Alexandria will host the start of a new holiday tradition in Old Town Alexandria, a Gingerbread contest and exhibition focused on the city’s proud firefighting heritage. All contest entries must depict a firefighting theme associated with an architectural structure (real or imaginary) such as a firehouse or burning building, and will be judged on the creativity or originality in the use of gingerbread and other edible materials. Participants are invited to compete in either the adult or junior division.

All entries will be judged on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at the historic Lloyd House in Old Town, Alexandria, and prizes will be awarded in each division. The aromatic displays will remain on view through Sunday, December 15, as part of the Candlelight House Tour event, and will be supplemented by a display of antique toys. The first floor of Lloyd House will also be decorated to the period of 1932 when William Smoot, Mayor of Alexandria, resided there with his family.

For more information or a list of the complete gingerbread contest rules and entry form, please visit www.historicalexandria.org or call 703.746.4554.
