The holidays are filled with beautiful things, and this year’s Scents & Sweets Competition is filled with just that. The competition kicks-off this season’s festivities with some of the most incredible gingerbread houses and fragrant floral arrangements you have ever seen. On Wednesday, December 3rd from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Celebrate Frederick Inc. invites you to see the works of art at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center.

Children, teens, adults, and professionals come together to showcase their talent. And you can bet the talent won’t be scarce, past entries include an entire edible castle! A panel of judges will pick the first and second place winners in both the gingerbread and floral arrangement categories. Each category will also be awarded The People’s Choice award. In its tenth year, you can bet the judges are going to have their work cut out for them. Winners will be announced at approximately 6:45 p.m.

If you would like to get a second look at the holiday beauties, select Frederick businesses will be showcasing them again during the First Saturday Gallery Walk on December 6th presented by the Downtown Frederick Partnership.

These events would not be possible without the hard work of the volunteers of the Holidays in Historic Frederick Committee, and the following community-minded businesses: Spires Sponsors- AT&T, Bechtel Group Foundation, Linton at Ballenger Creek by Drees Homes, Sandy Spring Bank, Spectrum Federal Credit Union, and Weis Markets; Carillon Sponsors- Citi, Comcast, COMSTAR Federal Credit Union, The Frederick News Post, and Roy Rogers-A Plamondon Company; Bandshell Sponsors- BB&T and Jean Peterson Design/ The JaBITCo Group.
