On Thursday, December 5th, Ripley’s San Antonio had a gingerbread contest. The Grand Prize winner, May the Del Angel, received $1,000 for her “Ripley’s Coming to Town” house. The first runner up, Sabrina B., received $700 for her “Home Sweet Home” house, and the second runner ups, Eileen, Angel, Victoria, received $300 for their “S’winter” house.
The winning gingerbreads are on display in the Louis Tussaud’s Lobby, (free) for public viewing. Stop by and let us know which gingerbread is your favorite.
The Inspiration behind the Ripley’s Christmas Town display comes from the Santa in Fantasyland display from Joske’s Department Store back in the 1960s. Families from San Antonio were eager to catch Joske’s Santa on top of the building and marvel at the Christmas scenes that filled the windows. Do you have a memory of Joske’s? We’d love for you to share your memories or photos with us when you visit!
