SIXTH ANNUAL HEMPFIELD HIGH SCHOOL GINGER BREAD HOUSE SHOW
This annual show Show features beautifully decorated Gingerbread Houses created by Hempfield High School Baking students. The houses will be on display throughout the ground level of the Ware Center, from 6-8 PM on First Friday. The gingerbread houses remain on display through December 20th.
Students asked area businesses to sponsor their gingerbread houses. For their donation, the student group designs, bakes, builds and decorates a large gingerbread house frequently with lights, moving parts or dry ice effects. All of the money that the businesses donate goes directly to The Four Diamonds Fund.
