MORRIS TOWNSHIP - The annual Gingerbread Wonderland in Morris Township is celebrating is 22nd anniversary.

The event, which started as a small display of gingerbread houses at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, has grown to an exhibit featuring more than 200 edible structures.

The display is available for 10 days, and the structures range from the traditional to the outrageous.

"Last year we had the Taj Mahal, that was pretty outrageous," says horticultural program specialist Cynthia Triolo. "We also had the Eiffel Tower. We've had a grand piano, Santa's workshop on a gingerbread. So there's been some really incredible ones over the years."

More than 15,000 people make the annual pilgrimage to check out the sweet exhibit.

When the event closes on Sunday, many artists will bring the displays to hospitals and senior citizens homes.
