The Town of Westfield has introduced another holiday tradition to locals as the 1st Annual Townwide Westfield Gingerbread House Display and Competition gets underway.

The online voting booth is open from December 20, 2018 through December 31, 2018. Winners will be announced on New Year’s Day 2019 and prizes given out at the January 4, 2019 Town Council Re-Organization meeting, according to organizers.

The contest includes four categories, under 14 kid’s-only effort, family/group effort, iconic buildings and a grand prize for the best in all categories.

The gingerbread creations have also helped liven-up many window displays in Downtown Westfield, including Midtown Authentic, N and C Jewelers, Alex and Ani, Sole Shoes, Mimi and Hill, Blende and more.
