Nov. 18-19: Gingerbread Jubilee

Walk through the RiverMill Event Centre this weekend and you might be overwhelmed by the scent of gingerbread.

That means the holidays are drawing near and it's time for the Fourth annual Gingerbread Jubilee.

Local celebrities, chefs, amateur and professional bakers and children's group will have gingerbread houses on display.

"A new initiative this year are the miniature trees that will be decorated," said Anna Crossley, manager of Children's Miracle Network.

Both gingerbread houses and miniature trees will be up for auction. More than 3,000 people came through the doors last year, she said.

And if your little one wants to make a gingerbread house, there will be kits available for sale for $15. More than 1,200 were made last year.

Look for the huge, walk-through gingerbread house made by the Harris County Sheriff's Department, said Crossley.

When: 1-6 p.m. Sunday; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday

Where: RiverMill Event Centre, 3715 First Ave.

Cost: Admission is free; $15 if you want to decorate a gingerbread house
