Making gingerbread houses is one of those holiday traditions that always sounds good in theory, but when it comes to execution: its a tedium which oftentimes zaps any remote sense of holiday spirit. What we’re saying is, making a gingerbread house is a nightmare, but seeing the house itself is a dream. As such, Gingerbread Village, a lifesized holiday attraction fit for the whole family, is a real treat.
From now until January 7, Houstonians can channel their holiday spirit at Gingerbread Village at City Place Plaza. Located at 1250 Lake Plaza Dr. in Spring, the village features a variety of themed installations reminiscent of classic Christmas special.
“Come experience City Place’s second annual Gingerbread Village where a trail of giant candy canes, lollipops, gumdrops, gingerbread men, and cookie trees, lead to a 16-foot high house and 12-foot tall windmill,” the event’s website reads.
Furthermore, the village plans to host a variety of Yuletide themed events throughout the month, including but not limited to DJs, karoake, and more. Check their socials to stay apprised.
Better yet, the Yuletide experience is completely free, no reservation required, and is open to all ages – dogs included.
Gingerbread Village is located at 1250 Lake Plaza Dr, Spring, TX 77389.
