It’s officially Christmas time! Woo-hoo!
Living in Vancouver there is never a shortage of fun things to do. We prepared our list of activities and/or places to check out during the holiday season well in advance.
Up next on our list was to go and visit the 23rd Annual Gingerbread Lane at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. The 40+ gingerbread houses were absolutely spectacular to see. The workmanship and detail that went into them is incredible. This beautiful one pictured above won first place.
This elaborate piece is Vancouver’s largest gingerbread house made by Executive Chef Thomas Heinrich. It stands 11 feet tall and 16 feet wide. It consists of 1400 egg whites, 400lbs of icing sugar & 500lbs of gingerbread dough!
We loved this gingerbread house! It was in our top 3 favorites.
This gingerbread house won first place. It was our favorite too.
The designs and details are so gorgeous!
If you’re in Vancouver, definitely check out the gingerbread houses on display at the Hyatt, open until December 27th. This event is in support of Make-A-Wish foundation so be sure to make a donation as well as vote for your favourite gingerbread house! Every year this annual event hosts approximately 20,000 visitors and has raised tens of thousands of dollars. We highly recommend stopping by and checking it out!
