We welcome everyone of all levels to enter their masterpieces, whether you are young or old, professional or just beginning! If you'd like to enter your own Gingerbread masterpiece in the show, we welcome all skill levels - there is no entry fee. Professional bakers: we welcome your entries to help publicize your store and bakery. Children and families, school and church groups encouraged. (also: www.woodgingerbread.org/ )
