GingerBread Lane is back for another year at the New York Hall of Science in Corona.
The record-holding display will be unveiled Nov. 23. Guests can visit the exhibit — which is made up hundreds of thousands of pounds of edible dough, icing and candy — until Jan. 12, 2020.
The massive display, which features gingerbread houses, shops and even a firehouse, was created by Jon Lovitch — a Queens resident who holds the Guinness World Record for the largest gingerbread village.
Lovitch will attempt to break his own record yet again this season, which he first won back in 2013.
Lovitch designs, bakes and decorates each element of the tiny town in his own home. It takes him nearly a year to complete every part of the exhibit, which includes upwards of 1,300 gingerbread structures for this year’s display.
He even gives names to his gingerbread storefronts — this year’s shops feature names like “Piping Hot Soup,” “My Two Front Teeth General Dentistry,” and “Visions of Sugar Plums Eye Glasses.”
The museum, located at 47-01 111th St., will also be running GingerBread Lane workshops, where visitors can make their own gingerbread houses and trains. Each participant will receive their own kit, complete with gingerbread pieces, icing and candy.
On the final day of the exhibit, museum officials plan to break down the exhibit, giving away individual pieces of GingerBread Lane on a first-come, first-served basis.
GingerBread Lane is free with admission. Admission is $20 Adults | $15 Children
