An overload of sugary, colorful displays elicits screams and “look over here” from spectators at the World’s Largest Gingerbread Village. One boy points to a football game with gingerbread players and gumdrop spectators – one of 100 or so displays at the Prescott Resort.

Holiday spirit is alive and well in Prescott

‘Everyone’s small town’ delivers Christmas memories

The warm, aromatic smell of gingerbread, crusty white sugar icing and syrupy gumdrops wafts through the air at the Prescott Resort “Christmas City” — billed as the World’s Largest Gingerbread Village. Dozens of tables are stacked with high-rise gingerbread houses seemingly reaching the ceiling. The length of the hallway, where more than 100 displays sit, thousands of candy pieces creates a bright, multicolored sight that elicits “oohs” and “aahs” from young and old. Peering into one yard, gingerbread folk toast marshmallows on pretzel sticks over a flame of candy corn. Coconut shavings cover the home’s path of hard peppermints and pretzel square windows.
