Family Fun Nights!
Decorate Your Own Gingerbread House!
Bring your family in for a night of sweet treats, good food, and holiday carols. At one of our three Family Fun Nights each December, you and your household are invited to decorate an our over-sized gingerbread house. You can have all the fun of decorating your gingerbread house without the hassle of cleaning it all up!
For more than 16 years, we have opened our doors for families to create lasting Christmas memories. This year, is no different.
When you attend one of our Family Fun Nights, you and your family will leave with more than a gingerbread house. The family interaction and memories created during this time will be talked about for years to come. In fact, some of our returning families have participated in our Family Fun Nights since its inception in 2002.
When you reserve your gingerbread house for Family Fun Nights, you have automatic access to unlimited icing and candy for your house.
And, if you want design advice or piping tips,
one of our friendly elves will be happy to assist.
In addition to unlimited icing and candy for your house, we also provide ample hors d’oeuvre and beverages throughout the evening.
If you don’t fill up on candy and icing, take a stroll to our desserts table for our selection of Christmas cookies!

What if I need to cancel my reservation?
We understand that plans can change during the Christmas season. If you’ve booked a house for Family Fun Night and are unable to make your reservation, we will create a take home kit with everything you need to decorate your house in your own house at a time that fits into your schedule.
