Some West Hartford residents can get into the holiday spirit this week while also supporting local charity groups.
Blue Black Square is hosting its annual Gingerbread Build, put on by Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity.
The display stands inside an Isham Road building and anyone willing to create a gingerbread house can do so throughout the weekend.
The houses will be raffled off, and all proceeds will go towards Habitat for Humanity.
Those wishing to participate have until Dec. 6.
Local schools have also created some of the houses on display.
The event coincides with the annual Holiday Stroll and Mitten Fun Run.
