KENT — The annual Gingerbread Festival of the Kent Chamber of Commerce is underway, with businesses around town displaying homemade holiday gingerbread houses. 

The houses were custom designed for many of the locations.  Anne Vance, for example, created a cozy fireside reading scenario for House of Books. Others created foreign fantasies, such as the Taj Mahal-inspired creation made by Ellen Corsell for her shop, Heron American Craft Gallery.

Visitors are encouraged to visit each house and vote for their favorite.
