The holiday season is approaching quickly, and Omni Hotels & Resorts readies not only for decorations, turkey dinners and lobbys full of yuletide cheer, but for new construction of tiny little edible houses all vying for big prizes. Come take a look at the festivities planned at the Omni Grove Park Inn, Omni La Costa, and Omni Barton Creek.
It began with a small group of gingerbread houses built by community members in 1992 as another way to celebrate the holiday season with no plans to continue the following year. There was no possible way to know that more than two decades later, The Omni Grove Park Inn National Gingerbread House Competition would be one of the nation’s most celebrated and competitive holiday events. In its 22nd year hosting the competition, the display has grown in more than just entries and creativity. It has become a true family holiday tradition. From the very young, to the very young at heart, the reaction to this magical experience is the same- one of awe, wonder, and delight. Details
