THE KENT CT. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE and the
3rd ANNUAL THE KENT GINGERBREAD FEST
want you to..... MEET FREDDIE
The NAUGHTY GINGERBREAD MAN from Kent, CT.
FREDDIE, THE NAUGHTY GINGERBREAD MAN is out on
parole for good behavior from Riker’s Island Correction
Facility in NY.
He was arrested because he stole a very closely guarded
gingerbread dough recipe from a famous Chef. It was
wildly popular in Europe, and spicier than your average
gingerbread dough. When he got out, he wanted to
relocate & start a new life. He heard about a quaint little
town called Kent Ct. that had an annual Gingerbread
Festival. He decided this is the town for him, so he hitched
a ride up to Kent with his secret recipe tucked under his
arm. When he got there, he found a sweet little bakery.
He slipped in unnoticed and added the secret spicy hot
ingredients to the gingerbread dough. When the baker
made the next batch of gingerbread boys and girls, FREDDIE
watched as he took the freshly baked spicy cookies out of the oven.
The baker then started to decorate them so they all looked different.
THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED!! FREDDIE took one look at the cute blond
spicy hot gingerbread girl on the right side of the cookie sheet and
fell in love. He had been very lonely for a long time. He wore his heart
on his sleeve while looking for the perfect gingerbread girlfriend.
When the baker turned his back FREDDIE leapt off the counter
and stole "GINGER" from the cookie sheet before the baker
could put her in the bakery window for sale.
The baker ran after him with a rolling pin. FREDDIE
managed to distract him by putting hot pepper into
the gingerbread dough before he ran away with
GINGER. As they escaped the baker heard him singing
run, run, fast as you can. You can't catch me
I'm FREDDIE THE NAUGHTY GINGERBREAD MAN..
The local realtors report FREDDIE is looking for a hideout in
one of the over 40 Gingerbread Houses in Kent's charming shops.
There is an All Points Bulletin and road blocks in the
Tri -State Area looking for FREDDIE as well as “WANTED”
posters in the Post Office and surrounding areas.
If you see him DO NOT APPROACH!!
He is armed with Hot Pepper & will freak out at the sight
of a glass of milk.
Put on your gumshoes & detective hats. Gather your friends
& family & join in on the GINGERBREAD MANHUNT.
FREDDIE'S crew of 10 gingerbread Bad Boys heard
about the Gingerbread housing boom in Kent and
have decided to join FREDDIE & GINGER.
