Columbia-area community leaders are holding a special contest this holiday season — to see who has the most creative gingerbread house in town.
The contest begins this Friday, Nov. 28, and voting will end on Friday, Dec. 5.
Seven venues in Columbia will have a house on the tour, according to Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce officials.
Ballots can be found through the chamber's website (parivertowns.com/m/events/view/Gingerbread-House-Tour-Contest), Columbia's visitors center and the participating venues.
The chamber also is holding a bazaar this Saturday, Nov. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 340 Locust St.
