CORONA — Sweet.
The massive "Gingerbread Lane" village is returning to the New York Hall of Science this week, featuring hundreds of houses decked out with icing, candy and sugar.
The village premiered last year and set Guinness World Record for the biggest gingerbread village, according to NYSCI.
This year's gingerbread village is even bigger, at several hundred feet wide and 7 feet high at its tallest point, according to chef Jon Lovitch, who designed and built the work of art by hand.
Lovitch will unveil the 5,000-pound gingerbread village on Nov. 13 and discuss his process, which he said in a video posted to NYSCI's website is "scientific" and fits in with the museum's hands-on ethos.
"It's definitely a handmade endeavor, and it fits in really well with what they do in NYSCI," he said.
The kick-off event also features hands-on activities for kids, music and gingerbread snacks — although you can't eat the gingerbread art.
The event runs from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m., and admission is free with an RSVP through NYSCI's website.
The exhibit will be at the museum through Christmas.
