If friends and family rave about your holiday cookies, you’ll be interested in this contest at River Park.
From my column:
… Santa’s Favorite Cookie Competition starts today and ends Dec. 3. The prize is a $200 Macy’s gift card and a free premium photo session with Santa. (The package consists of two 8-inch-by-10-inch photos, two 5-inch-by-7-inch photos, four 4-inch-by-6-inch photos, plus digital copies of the photos, says contest organizer Peter De Young.)
Interested? Pull out your favorite holiday cookie recipes. For each recipe, bake three dozen cookies, package them with the recipe, and include your name, phone number and e-mail address. Submit as many recipes as you like.
Bring the cookies to Santa between 4 and 8 p.m. daily through Dec. 3. He’ll be in a building between Macy’s and Edwards Fresno Stadium 22, across from the parking structure.
Santa will taste and judge the cookies as they arrive, giving them points for originality, taste, appearance and presentation. River Park will donate the remaining cookies to the Fresno Rescue Mission.
