Stroll through a whimsical display of over 30 gingerbread houses (PHOTOS)

It’s the most magical time of the year, and the Hyatt Regency Vancouver is celebrating the holidays with its annual Gingerbread Lane display.

The downtown hotel invites guests to come inside and check out its adorable holiday display in support of a good cause during its run from Nov. 30 through Dec. 31, 2019.

Over 30 decadent gingerbread creations will surround a carefully crafted centrepiece, and all donations are sent to the Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon charity partners. While the centrepiece is crafted by the Hyatt team, the rest of the gingerbread arrangements are designed by secondary schools, professionals and amateur culinary artists.

With over 20,000 guests visiting the gingerbread wonderland each year, the festive offering has raised over $75,000 for charity to date.

This year’s creations are as stunning as expected, taking all sorts of creative flights of fancy. There’s even a gingerbread Vancouver special house – complete with a for sale sign on the outside.

Take a look at some of what’s at Gingerbread Lane this year, then go check them out in person.


The 28th annual Gingerbread Lane makes its return to the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. This year, 29 gingerbread creations designed by secondary schools, professionals and amateur culinary artists participated in the annual competition. The Gingerbread Lane has raised over $75,000 for charity over the past 26 years, and this year the charity partner is Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon @makeawishbcyk . - I had the pleasure of being a media judge for the competition. Here are a few photos of some of the entrants.
