RocketKids Article

Girl Scouts of Gulf Coast Florida are excited to share that this year's Gingerbread Festival is returning to The Mall at UTC and will be displayed along the Grand Court of the upper level, December 1-19. Organizers are hoping many will join in the fun this year, either as a participant or visitor, at this unique, family-friendly event.

According to Patricia Ramthun, Chief Communications and Marketing Officer at Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc., "The festival is our council’s local annual friend and fundraising opportunity that also includes a STEM programming component for our Girl Scout troops and local classrooms. Participating Girl Scout troops and teachers are provided a complimentary gingerbread house kit thanks to funding by the event sponsors–Publix Super Markets Charities and FPL, and our community partners The Mall at UTC, UTC (University Town Center) and Benderson Development."

This event is local to the Girl Scout of Gulfcoast Council and the communities they serve. Their staff organizes the event, and it is presented with their partners at The Mall of UTC who provides space and support.

Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida welcomes the public to marvel at this holiday wonderland featuring more than 120 one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses crafted by over 150 local schools, youth groups, businesses, and nonprofit organizations. Enjoy a break during your holiday shopping, reserve the house of your choice for purchase and bring the family to this festive event. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite houses in the People’s Choice Award using a QR code available at the display. The event is free and it is open for self-guided viewing during regular mall hours.
