The winning entry will probably be good enough to eat!

The Fort St. John Visitor Centre is holding its fifth annual Gingerbread House contest.

This year’s contest has the theme ‘A Fairytale Christmas’ and participants are encouraged to have fairytale components in their designs.

Houses that are completely edible and have several floors will get bonus points. As well, anyone who provides the house recipe and has incorporated interesting ideas into the creation will be awarded extra points.

Entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Dec. 6 and can be dropped off at the Visitor Centre at 9523 100 St.

All the entries will be displayed between Dec. 7 and 10, and 13 to the 17.
