Nolan Martin and his mother Kylie look over gingerbread house contest entries in 2012. The contest will return for this year's Night of Lights in Murrysville on Dec. 1, 2017.

Murrysville residents, organizations and businesses are invited to once again show off their edible domicile construction skills this holiday season.

The Gingerbread House contest will return as part of the annual Night of Lights celebration on Dec. 1, with entries open to families, individuals, groups, organizations and businesses.

The houses must be no larger than 12 inches wide, 18 inches long and 18 inches high and must arrive on a sturdy board marked with the contestant's name, phone number, and address on the bottom.

Those wishing to participate must pre-register by calling the Recreation Department at 724-327-2100, ext. 131 for details and instructions.

Night of Lights guests can vote on their favorite entry for $1 per vote — proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
