We love the annual Gingerbread Stroll hosted by Highland Park Village. It’s an event that is beloved by both children and adults and features some of the most amazing pastry chefs Dallas has to offer. Organized by the tireless Christine McKenny, a top-producing Realtor at Dave Perry-Miller and Associates, it’s a must-do event for the holiday season.

Of course, because of it’s popularity with, we’re not surprised that this fantastic event that combines three of our favorite things — houses, shopping, and charity — is one of the top-five gingerbread home events in the nation!

This year’s Gingerbread Stroll starts this Friday, Nov. 14, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 30, inside Highland Park Village. You can cruise through 13 of the boutiques in this upscale shopping center while you admire and bid  on the gingerbread houses, and even get some tasty gingerbread cookies from Celebrity Cafe & Bakery. You can also enter to win prizes such as  holiday carriage rides through Highland Park, an overnight stay at the Four Seasons, the Ritz-Carlton, or the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek.

All proceeds from this year’s Gingerbread Stroll go to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Last year’s stroll raised more than $13,000 for Wipe Out Kids Cancer. Here’s hoping that this year’s stroll breaks records!

 “The Gingerbread Stroll has become a wonderful tradition during the most wonderful time of the year,” said McKenny. “People of all ages gather with their family and friends to attend, and it’s always fun to see how the chefs express themselves creatively. Everyone loves a gingerbread house!”
