JOY – a new holiday tradition

Polka Dots & Picnics presents JOY – a new holiday tradition is a delicious day of decorating gingerbread houses for the whole family!

Boring, Oregon (December 11, 2021) - Polka Dots & Picnics is bringing JOY, a new holiday tradition at Mt. Hood Center.

JOY is a family-centered event designed to celebrate the holiday season and engage personal connection in a luxurious setting while enjoying one of the most festive of Christmas activities … decorating gingerbread houses!

Each child will sit down to an assembled gingerbread house ready for festive candy décor with parents encouraged to participate in the creation of a magical memory! Held in the beautiful and climate-controlled ballroom at Mt. Hood Center, we will have full barn doors open for increased ventilation and social distancing. Tickets are $48 per child with a choice of two session times (11 a.m. and 2 p.m.). Guests will enjoy a sweet treat and a festive hot cocoa bar to delight those young and young at heart.

“Polka Dots & Picnics is thrilled by this new partnership with Mt. Hood Center – the area’s hottest new event venue! It aligns perfectly with our vision to reinvent the way we gather and celebrate in the Northwest. The world is ready to be together again and we are bringing those special moments in healthy spaces, luxurious details, and innovative experiences, including a fun gingerbread event. We make the effort while you make the memories.” – Lauren Tietsort, owner Polka Dots & Picnics

Alphalit Portland will join us by putting the bright in “merry and bright” with other fun activities on-site include Christmas tree sales, pony rides, canned goods drive for the Sandy Food Bank, and visits with Santa.
