Gingerbread sculptures 2012
Posted by eemilla on February 16, 2013
We’ve decided that visiting the Grove Park Inn’s Gingerbread Sculptures will be a nice tradition, so we sucked it up and paid the $10 parking fee so we could park really far away from the inn. Admittedly we’re part of the reason the fee was instituted: we will not spend any money there unless forced to. The last time we spent money there it was for a gin drink and a beer, and it set us back about $20 including a normal tip (plus that was at least five years ago). To make it even more difficult for locals to view the pieces, they’ve restricted visitors to Monday through Thursday. We took these changes in stride as my honey works every weekend so it was six of one and half dozen of another for one of us to take some time off work. It seemed that many more of the pieces were missing as they were on display in New York, whereas last year I only recall the grand prize being off site. Below are my favorites.
