On display from November 21 through Mid-January
See New England’s largest whimsical confectionary creation on display in the Blue Ocean Event Center lobby. Designed and hand-built by Amesbury resident Jim Shalkoski, this year’s giant gingerbread house features the Abominable Snowmonster of the North and a bevy of bumbles mischievously wreaking havoc on Santa’s magical village. Complete with a swaying Christmas tree, a swirling maple syrup distillery, toy workshop, sugar shack and bumble barn. The 8-foot wide by 10-foot tall sugary structure is constructed of edible gingerbread, candy, frosting and other colorful holiday sweets, while playful characters and elves are created free-hand from molded chocolate.
