ICC’s 2017 Gingerbread Village in Times Square
This year, ICC’s Annual Gingerbread Village will be hosted in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle, located in the Times Square Urbanspace market. This edible showpiece made entirely of gingerbread, icing, and sugar celebrates two distinct eras of Times Square —the classic Christmas traditions of the 1980’s and the excitement of today’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. Can you find the following iconic structures in this winter wonderland? Head to the Times Square Urbanspace Market — on 43rd Street between 7th Avenue and Broadway — to view the full gingerbread village and look for The Westin Hotel, Paramount Building, Palace Theatre, TKTS Booth, NYE Ball Drop, Marriot Marquis, the Military Recruitment center, and much more!
The Gingerbread Village will be on display 7 days a week from November 24 through December 23 between the hours of 11 am and 9 pm (ET).
Get a behind the scenes look at how ICC chef-instructors and student volunteers came together to design this year’s gingerbread village! See how the two different sides of the village came together as one. To view the final reveal, you’ll need to head over to the Times Square Urbanspace Market!
