BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The most anticipated event of the holiday season is just days away. The Festival of Trees kicks off this Friday.

Mary Bubala reports as part of the fun, Kennedy Krieger asked WJZ to decorate gingerbread houses for their fundraiser.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at WJZ. The weekend team, Adam May and Bernadette Woods, are hitting the slopes on a specially-designed gingerbread house. It lit up the newsroom as they decorated their ski chalet…while trying not to eat all the candy!

“We love winter. Adam and I love winter, so we decided to do a winter wonderland,” Woods said. “We had icing everywhere, we had all our candy laid out.”

A little for the house…a little for Bern! And she’s not the only one who gobbled up the candy. Jessica Kartalija‘s little helper took fistfuls as they built the Kartalija Krab Shack.

“My 2-year-old son eating all of the candy was definitely the most challenging part,” Kartalija said.

Kai Jackson‘s little sweeties helped him build his gingerbread house and they seemed to enjoy the frosting the most.

At Mary Bubala’s house, the elves gave up just three minutes of their day to help her assemble the WJZ starting line-up.

WJZ’s designs are now on their way to be judged.

“There is stiff competition this year and I think we ate all the candy off of ours so I’m not sure how well we will do but it’s all in good fun,” said Kartalija.

Yes–all in good, delicious fun.

The gingerbread designs will be judged against 100 others.  They will all be available for purchase at the Festival of Trees will all of the proceeds going to the Kennedy Krieger Institute.

You can see the Festival of Trees on Nov. 23, 24 and 25 at the Timonium Fairgrounds.
