Run, run as fast as you can so you can go see the gingerbread man!

The annual gingerbread showcase is back for its 9th year in a row, and it’s bigger and sweeter than ever before.

A combination of the works of amateur and professional bakers across Vancouver Island, this year’s event is themed “Celebrating Canada”.

So prepare to see (and smell) everything you love about Canada – from its people to its structures and landscapes.

All you have to do is donate to vote for your favourite gingerbread masterpiece. All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity – an organization that builds affordable housing for low income residents in Victoria.

Last year, the show raised over $50,000, and the goal is to improve on that this year!
