2021 Tour of Gingerbread Houses & Miniature Villages

Thank you Medina & all those who traveled to Medina for the Candlelight Walk and came to the tour and voted for your favorite gingerbread house.  We had a lot of fun and were able to raise over $1100 for the Medina Battered Women's Shelter & YAHAB.  We also thank all those who participated by building a Gingerbread Creation.  We hope next year to have even more participants and that this fun event would become a tradition for many families and for you.  

Below is a list of the winners along with a description.  If you are so interested, we have many videos on our Facebook page of the tour including a spotlight on the many different entries. The winning entries were determined by a "People's Choice Awards."  People voted for their favorite by donation and those with the largest donation amount determined the winning entries. 

3rd place Children's Division - Chloe Hallman

A lovely gingerbread house with a peppermint pathway, gumdrop roof and falling candy snowflakes with a gingerbread Christmas tree and Gingerbread man out front. Great job Chloe!

1st place Children's Division - Rhys Knettel

A frosting covered gingerbread structure with walls decorated in edible marker, opalescent sprinkle snow covered roof, and a peppermint window front door with a gingerbread man and tree outside. Way to go Rhys!

1st place Adult Division - The Eaken Family

This gingerbread country church stands an impressive 23" tall! Chocolate chip and gingerbread steeple (yes there is a baked bell inside) and accented with pulverized Jolly Rancher candies in various colors baked in the openings of the gingerbread wall and front panels to make edible stained glass windows, a melted candy pond with frosting swans and a gingerbread bench, a pretzel fenced gingerbread tombstone cemetery and apple and lime rock candy evergreen trees, overall dusted with confectioner sugar snow!
