Gingerbread (or in Norwegian, ‘pepperkake’) is a quintessential feature of the Norwegian holiday season. Towns all over the country come together to build their own miniature cookie cities, bringing families, schools, businesses, nursing homes, and friends all together during the holiday season. We want Minnesota to get in on the fun, too! Since its launch in 2015, our Gingerbread Wonderland has grown to more than 250 structures. You will find a few hundred familiar buildings and landmarks created by our community, including structures by professional bakers and gingerbread enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

In the winter when the sun sets early, it is easy to feel down. Elvis Otter is lonely. His friends try to help, showing him the ways in which winter is wonderful and how to find joy, even in the darkest of seasons. However, as soon as his friends leave, the Goblins come and gobble up his happiness. How can Elvis chase away the darkness and convince his friends that the Goblins are real?
Through hand-carved marionette characters, hand puppets, and beautiful music, With Stars Above considers how families and friends can find warmth together in the deepest winter. The Wish Work Puppet Series is a program of Hinterhands Puppet Company.
