While it might be a little early to start talking about Christmas stuff, it’s never the wrong time to talk about cookies. And today’s 4th annual Fairmount Park Holiday Display preview will have a lot of ’em.

With local chefs creating twelve historic Fairmount properties out of gingerbread, Monday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony will officially open the free display to the public, which will run, under normal circumstances, from Mondays – Saturdays, 9:30 am – 7 p.m. and Sundays, 12 – 6 p.m. Today’s  ceremony begins at 2 p.m. at The Rotunda of The Shops at Liberty Place, 1625 Chestnut Street.

Oh, and from December 3rd until December 30th, six of the mansions being recreated in the gingerbread house display will be decorated and themed for the holidays. Tours in which guests will hear the stories of each house and receive collectible recipe cards will be available by trolley. Tickets for the tour of the Park houses can be found here.
