Smells of gingerbread are in the air! The Omni Grove Park Inn's National Gingerbread House Competition™ has grown in more than just entries; it has become a true family holiday tradition. From the very young to the very young at heart, the reaction to this magical experience is the same - one of wonder, awe and delight. The time has finally arrived for the 24th Annual National Gingerbread House Competition™. After the judging and the awards ceremony are over, the display will be set up throughout the hotel and will be open for public viewing beginning on November 27th through January 5th, 2017.
As a means to preserve the overall guest experience, The Omni Grove Park Inn will open its doors to the public to view the Gingerbread display and holiday splendor Sundays at 3pm through Thursdays, based on availability, excluding holidays.
A minimum $10 parking charge will be in effect for all drive-on guests during the holiday season (one charge per vehicle, based on availability).
Half of each parking charge collected this holiday season will be returned to the community in support of one of six local not-for-profits. In the last two years alone, we have been fortunate enough to contribute over $193,000 of charitable donations to local non-for-profit organizations through our holiday parking initiative.
