The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa and Savannah Harbor Foundation will again host the 18th annual Gingerbread Competition this holiday season. Registration is now open.  

This celebrated annual culinary design competition includes adult, teen, youth and student divisions, and is open for anyone to participate by registering at savannahharborfoundation.com/gingerbread. Cash prizes of up to $1,000 are awarded to the top three competitors in each category.

Over 30,000 visitors make the pilgrimage to Hutchinson Island annually to enjoy the holiday festivities at Savannah Harbor. This year, Savannah Harbor welcomes three new celebrity judges to include Food Network’s Ron Ben Israel, TLC’s Wayne Steinkopf and Dianna Tornow of "Extreme Cake Challenge." All entries will be on display beginning Nov. 24 to kick off the holidays with the grand reveal and the annual Boat Parade of Lights.

Judging will take place Nov. 17, with an Awards Ceremony at 4:30 p.m. In addition to the Gingerbread Competition and display, the Savannah Harbor Holiday Series at the Westin also includes events like Thanksgiving brunch, breakfasts with Santa, Enchanted Princess Party, Holiday Equinox Concert supporting the Empty Stocking Fund, spa nights, golf tournaments, Christmas brunch and a New Year’s Eve celebration.
