OXFORD, Miss. – The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts will host 12 days of holiday fun Dec. 9-20, with the annual Gingerbread House Village and special events. The village will open for display from 2 to 5 p.m. Dec. 9, with a ribbon cutting and creator’s reception following at 6 p.m.
The Oxford Civic Chorus will perform during the reception.
“This will be the fourth year of the Gingerbread Village,” said Norman Easterbrook, director of the Ford Center. “It has grown each year, and we are thrilled with all of the entries we have. In a way, it’s the Ford Center’s holiday card to the community.”
The houses are created by participants from the Oxford community and showcase their creative handiwork. A few of the many participants are Holli’s Sweet Tooth, Oxford Mom & Tots, Memory Makers, Cypress Lake Soap, University Public Events and Ole Miss Catering.
