Juliann Adams, Palisade Chamber Executive Director says “As the Palisade Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Palisade prepare for Palisade’s Olde Fashioned Christmas Celebration December 5th – 7th, Gingerbread builders need to know details now!”

It’s time to plan, design and decorate your entry for Palisade’s Olde Fashioned Christmas Gingerbread Contest and Show Case presented by Guild Mortgage, Saturday December 6th at the Community Center.  Dixie Burmeister, contest coordinator says all the details and entry forms are available at www.palisadecoc.com.

Seven categories ensure something for all ages and all levels, beginners thru experienced, Burmeister explained, with hundreds of dollars in cash and prizes. This year, a “Just for Fun Display Table” has been added for those wanting the fun of display, without competition. Gingerbread kits are allowed in all categories EXCEPT Serious Adult.

There’s more! Gift bags will be given to every child who enters, a live Gingerbread Man and Lady will attend the event, and there will be a decorating table for kids to try their hand at decorating. Personalized gingerbread cookies will be available for sale as well, plan to take part in this popular Palisade event.

Food Network Star’s Holiday Gingerbread Creation on Display 

At Palisade’s Gingerbread Contest and Showcase

 Presented by Guild Mortgage, December 6th

 “Lenny McNab, winner of the Food Network’s 2014 competition to find their latest “New Food Network Star,” is joining us in celebrating all things gingerbread by generously offering us the opportunity to display his fabulous gingerbread project this year” says Burmeister.  “It will be on display at our contest and showcase December 6th at Palisade Community Center.”  Known as the Gourmet Cowboy, McNab is the executive chef at the beautiful Kessler Canyon Ranch outside of DeBeque.  Lenny will have his own show on the Food Network in 2015.  “Lenny may appear at the showcase if it fits into his schedule and we’ll let you know,” says Burmeister.  

 His house is for display only and will NOT be in the competition.  Many entries plus Lenny’s display can then be seen starting December 10th at Guild Mortgage, with more at The Fountains at Hilltop and Toys for the Fun of It.
