2018 Gingerbread Tour winners
The second annual Monticello Gingerbread Tour produced some amazing feats of Christmas engineering again this year. First place went to Bobby Jane Gregory for her “Grandma and Grandpa’s Cabin” gingerbread house at the Line Camp Steakhouse (pictured above). She took home the first place honors despite the Line Camp’s location north of town.

Bobby Jane Gregory, owner of the Line Camp Steakhouse at Roughlock Resort, is 120 Cello Bucks richer after her impressive creation, “Grandma and Grandpa’s Cabin,” won top honors in the 2018 Monticello Gingerbread House Tour competition.

Winners in the second annual competition were announced at the Monticello Tree Festival in Veterans Park on Saturday, Dec. 15.

Second place went to Sally Jack for her interpretation of “Rapunzel’s Tower” at Zions Bank. The third place “house” was Liesl Francom’s carousel at the Mercantile.

There were 17 beautiful gingerbread houses in the 2018 competition. Folks who trekked around Monticello to see the dilectible works of art had an opportunity to cast their vote for the winners and bid on the houses they deemed the greatest feats of candy-infused engineering.

Tyler Hall, owner of Artisan Jewelers and Monticello Gingerbread House Tour organizer, helped start a gingerbread house tour when he was in St. George, UT that has since become a big community affair. Last year he brought the event to Monticello and it was also very successful.

He said the tour was equally successful in its second year.

“The point,” he said, “was to get people out to local businesses during the Christmas season.” Hall added that the event also raised nearly $800 to help area folks in need.

The original plan was to donate the cash to local toy and food drives, but he said since people seem to have plenty of toys and food, it will probably be turned into gas cards instead.
