In Red Bank, they have a gingerbread walk every year. Local bakeries and restaurants make gingerbread houses and the retail stores display them. You can pick up a map of the stores that are participating and walk with your family, enjoying the imagination and skill that goes into making one of these creations. While you wander, make notes for future shopping expeditions!
Your town may not have a gingerbread walk, but check with borough hall or the visitor’s center because they will know all the holiday events going on in your area. Or you could make your own gingerbread house. You can get kits from the supermarket or make it from scratch if you’re really adventurous. Challenge your friends to make their own and you can have a neighborhood gingerbread house walk.
