PHOTOS: Local Architects Build Largest Gingerbread City To Benefit Charity

WASHINGTON (JCHAYWARD.COM) –More than 50 teams of architects, contractors and engineers gathered on Monday to build the world’s largest Gingerbread city to benefit six local charities.

Invented by David M. Schwarz Architects, the seventh annual Gingertown event will be available for the public to see from November 27th through the 29th at 1133 Connecticut Avenue, NW.

This year’s theme is Gingertown University and among the sweet buildings constructed out of icing, jelly beans, sprinkles, and gumdrops, are the I M Pez Library, The Swedish Fish Boat House and the Peppermint Patty Performing Arts Center.

There will be a happy hour on Thursday at Panache, located at 1725 DeSales St, around the corner from the Gingertown site.  You can donate to charity  and receive a coupon for 10% off your meal at Panache.
