The rains abated for the 10th Annual Gingerbread Build-Off, presented by AIA Houston, and the coveted Grande Prix de Show was awarded to PDG Architects for a wintry wonderland scene with Rudolph, Yukon Cornelius, Sam the Snowman, Hermey the Misfit Elf and the Abominable Snow Monster. It was a fun day with food, crafts and a visit from Santa, and prizes were handed out for the best in numerous categories including architectural icon, tallest, holiday themed, Houston-centric and public favorite.
