A sweet holiday tradition is ready for the Christmas season. Bakers have been busy putting together the Gingerbread Village for its new location at Turning Stone Resort Casino.

Christmas tree lightings and Santas are signs of the season. But there's only one place in Central New York to see the true sign of the holiday; the opening of the Gingerbread Village at Turning Stone.

The annual village, which has been recognized the last several years by Forbes Travel Guide as one of the best gingerbread villages in the country, will be set up at the casino in Verona, New York. Thousands of visitors travel to Turning Stone to see one of the largest gingerbread displays in the Northeast.

It usually takes 30 employees over 2,200 hours to make the impressive village each year that consists of more than 700 pounds of gingerbread dough, 2,045 pounds of icing, and over 750 pounds of candy. "This year close to 40 employees across 20 departments stepped up to support our Pastry team to ensure you can all enjoy this beloved holiday tradition," Turning Stone shared.

The opening of the Gingerbread Village, Turning Stone's kick-off to the holidays will be Monday, November 22 and it's definitely a must-see over the holidays. The display has been located in Exit 33 for the last several years but will have a new home inside the casino for 2021. You can see the display near The Commons shopping boutiques this year.

Here's a peek at the 2021 Gingerbread Village.
