The Boston Christmas Festival hosted its 20th annual Gingerbread House Competiton to benefit Housing Families Inc., a Malden based non profit dedicated to ending family homelessness in Massachusetts. Boston area restaurants created elegant gingerbread houses which were on display at Boston’s Seaport World Trade Center November 8-10. Houses were judged and awarded special recognition in various categories. Donors purchased the gingerbread houses to help support Housing Families programs.
