Walk inside a life-size gingerbread house in Mad. Sq. Park next month

Madison Square Park will transform into a scene straight out of "Hansel and Gretel" as Taste of Home's Gingerbread Boulevard two-week installation returns Dec 6! 

RECOMMENDED: Christmas in NYC 

Wander down to the life-size gingerbread house and ogle—no, salivate—over the candy-covered crib built with ginger “bricks," which is topped with a “frosting-covered” roof and adorned with peppermint sticks, gum drops and more. Better yet, you can actually go inside this house to check out virtual and interactive elements such as a marshmallow snowman and decorate a Christmas tree. 

Once again, this event is sponsored by Folgers. Last year, folks were able to sip complimentary java while munching on M&Ms, Twix, Snickers and Dove chocolates. In case these treats aren’t available this year, you may want to bring munchies. (Y’know, to keep you from nibbling the scrumptious house). 

The gingerbread house will be open to the masses before Madison Square Park’s tree-lighting ceremony at 4:30pm on Dec 6 and will remain on-view through Dec 18 (Mon-Fri 2-8pm; Sat, Sun noon–8pm).
