Registration is now open for the annual Uptown Chefs Gingerbread House Competition in support of the Kamloops Food Bank.
The contest has five categories: toddlers (ages five and under), elementary school, high school, individual and professional.
Prizes will be announced on the event’s Facebook page on Dec. 28.
All entries will be displayed in the lobby of the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre, at 1250 Rogers Way in Aberdeen, from Dec. 1 to Dec. 24.
Gingerbread designers are being urged by organizers to be as creative as possible and to not be afraid to stray from typical gingerbread house ideas.
For every gingerbread house entered in the competition, Uptown Chefs will donate $10 to the food bank in the form of Christmas gifts.
Each person who visits the hotel to view and vote on the gingerbread houses — with COVID-19 protocols in place — will receive a complimentary hot chocolate and house-baked cookie at Romeos Kitchen + Spirits, which is inside the hotel.
To take part in the contest, go online to romeoskitchen.ca and fill out the form or call
