The exhibit opens and will be judged on Saturday November 24. Prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges, as well a people's choice. All gingerbread FIREhouses will remain on exhibit at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum though Saturday December 22nd, and most will be available by raffle.
Find the Holiday Mouse at the old Firehouse
A family of festive holiday mice have taken up residence in the Aurora Regional Fire Museum. See CoCo as he bakes in the museum's kitchen, Sparks as he tries to ring a fire bell, and Ashes as he decorates a 1948 fire engine.... We'll give you a special treat if you can spot all fifteen mice.
