For 25 years, the Seattle Sheraton Hotel has hosted the annual Gingerbread Village and has had the display set up in the hotel’s lobby. This year the display is moving across the street at the City Centre shopping center. This year’s theme is 25 Years of Cheer: A Celebration of Seattle. If you really want to feel inadequate in your gingerbread-building abilities, be sure to take this in as some of the city’s top architecture firms, master builders and the chefs of Sheraton Seattle culinary team have come together to “rediscover the city’s historic past and imagine the future, including its waterfront. From the looming skyscrapers and underground tunnels, to the Seattle Great Wheel and the Space Needle that symbolize our city today, Seattle has a rich history of incredible structures. Along with a look back at the city’s storied past, this year’s displays will envision the future of Seattle.” The display will be set up from November 21 through January 1.
As a benefit for the Pike Market Senior Center and Food Bank, this joyful competition will be held on Friday, December 1 with brings in about 10,000 people each year. Dozens of caroling teams will be singing their very best to impress during the sing-off on the Figgy Main Stage.
