A life-size gingerbread house is returning to Madison Square Park

Written by

Get your gum drop-buttons ready. The life-size Gingerbread Boulevard, with a giant gingerbread house, returns to Madison Square Park on December 7.

You can merrily walk through a winter wonderland of cookie-lookin' bricks, a frosting-like roof, and all sorts of licorice and candy-cane decorations. You can also see a video of the story of the gingerbread man who lives in this very home and join in on other interactive activities. The tree-lighting ceremony at 3:30pm on December 7 kicks off the holiday festivities

RECOMMENDED: Christmas in NYC 

On its opening day, visitors to the installation can score a medley of free goodies, including gratis coffee, copies of Taste of Home magazine and nick nacks from Folgers and Domino Sugar. 

You can visit Gingerbread Boulevard through December 20. We checked it out last year, and it was cute—but would probably be a lot more magical for kids. Bring 'em!   

CORRECTION: The original version of this post stated that there were several recreations of gingerbread houses. There is only one gingerbread house in this year's iteration. We sincerely apologize for this error.
