Gingerbread village competition returns to Surrey mall

Annual event benefits Surrey Christmas Bureau

The gingerbread village competition at Central City Shopping Centre is back for a third year.

The Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association is hosting its annual Gingerbread Village competition from Dec. 7 to 15, during mall hours.

People can vote for their favourite gingerbread creation by donating to Surrey Christmas Bureau. The display is in front of the Winners store.

The winners in each category will be selected by a panel of community judges.

All entries are eligible for the $500 People’s Choice Award. Everyone who visits the display can vote for their favourite entry with a cash donation.

Following the end of the display, the entry that receives the most donations will win the People’s Choice Award. The winner will be announced on social media on Dec. 17.

All voters will be entered to win a $250 Central City gift card, according to the Downtown Surrey BIA.

The deadline to register to create a gingerbread house for display is Nov. 30. To enter, visit downtownsurreybia.com and download the entry form.
