As a grand finale to this year’s exhibit at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Park, GingerBread Lane creator Jon Lovitch will give away all houses and village items on Sunday and will also ship houses to children unable to visit due to illness or other personal situations.

GingerBread Lane, a 1.5-ton, 300-square-foot village made entirely of edible gingerbread, royal icing, and candy, has been acknowledged as the largest gingerbread village in the world by the “2014 Guinness World Records.”

The project took one year to develop and complete, requiring approximately 1,500 hours of labor. Instructions will be given on how to care for the houses.

The line forms starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday. The exhibit is open until noon.

The giveaway begins at noon with one house per family, or one set of other GingerBread Lane items such as a train, cable cars, sailboats and a nutcracker, while supplies last

Museum admission is $11 for adults 18 and over; $8 for children 2-17, students and seniors.

Welcome to the discussion.
