Nov. 26: Gingerbread FIREhouse Exhibit at Fire Museum

Join us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 26th) from 1 to 4pm for the Aurora Regional Fire Museum's 3rd annual holiday exhibit opening and Gingerbread FIREhouse Contest.

More than a baker's dozen gingerbread FIREhouses, fire stations, and burning buildings have been specially crafted for this event. Contest rules state that all entries depict a firefighting themed architectural structure (real or imaginary), and that except for the base, everything must be made from 100% edible materials. Over $500 in cash and prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges, as well a people's choice.


Also back for the holidays are our family of festive firehouse mice who have taken up residence to decorate the Aurora Regional Fire Museum. See CoCo as he bakes in the museum's kitchen, Sparks as he tries to ring a fire bell, and Ashes as he decorates a 1948 fire engine.... We'll give you a special treat if you can spot all fifteen mice.

The Gingerbread FIREhouse Exhibit opens — and will be judged — on Saturday, November 26th with special activities, FREE admission for the day, a visit from Santa the Fire Chief, storytelling, a holiday mouse hunt, and more. All gingerbread FIREhouses will remain on exhibit at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum though Saturday December 17th, and most will be available by raffle.
