Vote in the Palace Hotel's Gingerbread Competition!

For the sixth year in a row, representatives from local community organizations have partnered with the Palace Hotel's culinary team to participate in its Annual Gingerbread Decorating Competition. 
On display in the Palace Hotel lobby through December 31, 2012, guests can participate by voting for their favorite Gingerbread design. When you do, you can enter to win one of three weekend stays for two at the Palace, including Sunday brunch in the Garden Court.

Three of the winning designer’s charities will receive money donated to their organization plus a check from the Palace Hotel.
