WHATCOM – The Port of Bellingham’s annual Holiday Festival, featuring the gingerbread house contest and display, will be held Dec. 7-9 at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal. The gingerbread house contest is free and open to bakers of all abilities and ages. New for 2012 is a themed category called “Uniquely Whatcom.” The event is also a food drive to benefit the Bellingham Food Bank and eventgoers are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items. To enter the contest, access the online entry form at portofbellingham.com or call (360) 676-2500. Entry forms are due Dec. 4, and the gingerbread houses are due the following day, and will be on display Dec. 7-9. Contest entries are donated to a silent auction that runs throughout the festival, with proceeds benefitting the Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross.
