Starkville, Mississippi Festival of Trees

Starkville, Mississippi Festival of Trees

The Starkville, Mississippi Festival of Trees will soon kick off it’s annual celebration with everything from a tree decorating contest to fancy dinners to a gingerbread house contest. Gingerbread houses must be made from at least 80% edible ingredients (my guess is that means you can use super glue!) and follow certain criteria. They will be judged and proceeds from the auction will go to the United Way.

Check out the Festival of Trees website for official rules and information about the gingerbread house contest. I had considered doing a house myself but with this busy time for us I don’t think I will do it this year.

Even if you don’t make a house, be sure to go to the website to get information about how you can view the houses made and get involved in the exciting events!
