PITTSBURGH —– Guests visiting The Block Northway this Holiday Season will be treated to a sweet display. Nearly 60 gingerbread houses have been created by individuals, families, Girl Scout troops and various organizations. The sugary exhibit will be in the South Corridor Lower Level between DSW and Land’s End from November 16, 2021 to January 16, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day and FREE to the public.
“We invite guests to visit The Block Northway where they can return to community and winter holiday traditions,” said Jamie Pavlot, Director of Experience. “Come experience this Gingerbread fairy-tale display, custom created and inspired by participants who are excited to celebrate the magic of the season”.
Part of the fun is seeing the various ways that candy is used to decorate the houses: gum drops, pin wheel candies, jellybeans, gummies, candy canes, M&M’s, Necco Wafers, Christmas quins, mini beads and, of course, frosting! This year’s gingerbread display includes several interesting and quirky titles such as: The Northway Mall Bird Cage, Our House, A Visit to France, Santa’s Surprise, Allen Family Treehouse, Happy Holidays, A Home Alone Christmas, Camp Redwing, SEAsons Greetings, Hope House and many more.
To add to the festivities throughout the holidays there will be sounds of the season concerts scheduled throughout the month of December on the upper level. As a bonus, “Sweets and Treats” will be available for sale near the gingerbread village so folks can relax and enjoy a beverage as they browse the display.
