After making the Gingerbread House, families may also experience Exploration Place exhibits, including Toytopia National Traveling Exhibit. Play all day long in a world of big toys and big fun! Shake things up with the world’s largest etch-a-sketch, tour a life-size doll house, build a fort, and set the high score in the retro video arcade, plus much more!
Enjoy a display of gingerbread houses created by Mark Arts students. And get in the holiday mood with a quartet of strolling carolers from Butler Community College.
It’s the perfect event for guests to explore, sample and create holiday memories while supporting the Wichita community!
