Human Services Programs of Carroll County sponsors the Gingerbread Festival to raise money for the homeless and others in need. This year the festival will take place in the Main Street Exchange in Westminster, across from the Westminster Library. It will run from November 25 through December 1. The public is invited to enter gingerbread constructions. Go to hspinc.org for information about how to submit an entry.
Attendees at the festival have the opportunity to "vote" for their favorite entries by purchasing coins to drop in containers by the entries. All the funds raised by this event go to HSP efforts to support those in need.
